In the spirit of No Logo and Fast Food Nation, Disconnected is the author's journey into modern youth culture, meeting and speaking to hundreds of kids on the way. Shocking and revealing, it gives adults an insight into understanding a generation gap that has never been so wide. Confronting crime, underage sex, fame obsession, violence, ambition, learning and friendship, Nick Barham's compelling investigation finds that this disconnection from what adults understand to be substantial or real is creating a radical new youth culture.

"He dashes all over the place, like a search engine set to random, like an ad exec brainstorming... It's full of fun" Daily Telegraph "A truly shocking book" Independent "It is refreshing to find a book that attempts to understand and enjoy the passionate technicolour diversity of modern youth culture" Daily Telegraph "Sure, some of it's shocking, but it's also positive and hopeful, too" Elle "Barham is firmly on the side of the kids... His interviewees talk freely to him about taking shed-loads of E and ketamine (originally a horse anaesthetic)... He sees people wearing T-Shirts that say "Jesus is a c**t", watches Jackass, surfs porn, and visits the bondage nightclub Torture Garden to see people having sex in public...Barham muses provocatively" Guardian
