"An excellent book by a genius," said Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., of this now classic exploration of the 1960s from the founder of new journalism. "This is a book that will be a sharp pleasure to reread years from now, when it will bring back, like a falcon in the sky of memory, a whole world that is currently jetting and jazzing its way somewhere or other."--Newsweek

User Review  - Cassandra - Goodreads

Wolfe's first collection of essays reads like a cultural time capsule from mid-60s America. Historically interesting and totally entertaining. Read full review
