It used to be pretty easy to distinguish between the bourgeois world of cap italism and the bohemian counterculture. The bourgeois worked for corporati ons, wore gray, and went to church. The bohemians were artists and intellec tuals. Bohemians championed the values of the liberated 1960s; the bourgeoi s were the enterprising yuppies of the 1980s. But now the bohemian and the bourgeois are all mixed up, as David Brooks ex plains in this brilliant description of upscale culture in America. It is h ard to tell an espresso-sipping professor from a cappuccino-gulping banker. Laugh and sob as you hear about the information age economy's new dominant class. Marvel at their attitudes toward morality, sex, work, and lifestyle , and at how the members of this new elite have combined the values of the counter-cultural sixties with those of the achieving eighties. These are th e people who set the tone for society today, for you. They are bourgeois bo hemians: Bobos. Bobos define our age. Their hybrid culture is the atmosphere we breathe. Their status codes govern social life, and their moral codes govern ethics and influence our politics. Bobos in Paradise is a witty and serious look at the cultural consequences of the information age and a penetrating description of how we live now.
