I'm almost finished this book.

While a lot of the content (Gothic ethnicity and origins) was already covered in Peter Heather's 'The Goths', I'm finding Kuwolski's work far more readable, with a fluid and evocative narrative compared to Heather's very academic text.

That said, I did find that Heather's book triggered many more 'sticky note' activity (the top of the book is stuffed with them).

A fine book with great content, but I'd maybe choose one or the other in hindsight as opposed to reading both.
