Wayne's World 16 Aug. 2013
By Richard Cumming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author is one of our great public intellectuals. These essays are deeply thought out and always incisive. He writes about poets, painters, movie stars and popular culture. The essay on Lana Turner alone would be worth the price of admission. Brilliant!

My 1980s 2 Mar. 2014
By Ashley Coffey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Koestenbaum is a genius. These essays are humorous, insightful, chic, authoritative but not degrading, fun, sexy, smart, unique, lovable and extremely enjoyable to read.

Had high hopes 8 Oct. 2013
By Patricia Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found the book well-written and critically reviewed, but I personally found it too intellectual for my taste. I was hoping for personal experience rather than esoteric ramblings.
