Odd Angles on the 1950s By E W Farnsworth
Paperback: $11.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
The author’s intent in presenting these ten stories early in 2017 is to remind Americans and right-leaning Europeans that there is a cost to attempting to return to a bygone era which was never... More > really a paradise.

The author is decidedly not ‘anti-Trump’. Nevertheless, having lived through the 1950s without being lobotomized, imprisoned, wounded in battle or strapped in an electric chair, he is grateful for benefits provided by many who, deservedly or not, suffered and are forgotten.< Less
