One Step Beyond is a fast, fun and introspective read that captures the spirit and mood of Westside Los Angeles in the early 1980s. The atmosphere shifted from 70s, good-time, party-rock-heshers, to the glitzy, manic, punk new-wavers of the 80s. Mike Pearson chronicles this era of sudden and intense change as he tells the story of his teen years. Pearson's insight and humor makes for a highly entertaining and compulsively readable memoir that drops you straight into the teen, pop culture world of beach city Los Angeles in the 1980s.
