REVIEW: “The Groupies (1974)” by Meghan Louise Wagner

Review of Meghan Louise Wagner, “The Groupies (1974),” Luna Station Quarterly 48 (2021): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

Content note: Animal death, drug use, violence.

Didi and her friend Bella are the titular groupies, hanging out with the band Die Obscure whenever they can. This story exudes all the hormones, angst, and uncertainties of teenagers in the 70s, with an added layer of entirely unexpected magic. It’s part glorious, part sordid, and I loved it.
