The Kandy-kolored Tangerine-flake Streamline Baby
Wolfe introduced us to the Sixties, to extravagant new styles of life that had nothing to do with the "elite" culture of the past. The Twist, the Beatles, the Bouffant Hairdos, the Kar Kustomizers (title piece), and much more are brilliantly given their place in history, and the older cultural guard, struggling to preserve the forms of its status against the rising tide of barbarism, receives ruthless and hilarious scrutiny.

You may not always agree with Wolfe's take or understand why he has chosen a particular subject for one of these essays, but his voice captures the flavor of whatever he's trying to describe quite clearly. His perspective allows us a peak underneath the rug of the American Dream. Read full review

Wolfe's interesting exposť of various aspects of the early 60's. Very interesting read, particularly with the amount of time has passed. It's a contemporary look at that period of time. Read full review
