‘big, cubistic heads and mismatched features’ are
‘dying over and over again against the indifferent fence with the
water just beyond it’ (39–40); in praise of the shark and
former punk-metal headliner Wendy Williams, who in middle age moves
‘from the right to be smutty to the right to die violently by her
own hand’ (100); and about her
’s ‘provocative self-fashioning sets her tough looks up against the history of her childhood, which, as it unfolds in the courtroom, renders her punk masquerade into a pathetic and painful cover for her broken childhood and her status as ward of the state’ ( 2016 : 355). At this point in the story, Salander has grown up and gained further insights about the world around her. She is well aware of the impression her appearance makes, and skilfully uses this to her advantage.

Czech friend took me to a dingy club in Prague where a mob of dirty
young people had assembled to listen to a dirty young band who
played a brand of music we remember as ‘garage rock’ or
‘garage punk’ but that sounded like anarchy with a
Coupland’s fiction and aspects of the 1990s
Washington State grunge music scene.27 The coincidence of the
author’s geographical association with the Pacific Northwest certainly
strengthened these connections. Nevermind, Nirvana’s second album,
was released in September 1991, six months after the publication of
Generation X. Its themes of generational discontent, disillusion and
disaffection, reaching their most intense (and commercially successful)
on ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ – issues vital to the novel – were probably
new only to those who had neither heard a punk

Bivouac begins with the appearance of eighteen performers wearing
light grey suits and caked in heavy blue pigment. The make-up has dried
to a bright cerulean on the performers’ exposed skin but remains a wet,
dark cobalt in their hair. The gloppy substance glues their coiffures into
