Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll . . . Straight from the fridge - I Love Lucy meets The Sopranos in The Twilight Zone. From Elvis to Johnny Rotten, Neptune, New Jersey (with Greetings from Asbury Park) to Swinging London. Some say 'it all happened in the 60s' but in BOOM! anthropologist and social historian Ted Polhemus shows how the roots of our (post) modern age go back to the heady years just after WWII. If you like Mad Men, Blade Runner, American Graffiti, Blow-up, The Wild One . . . wish you'd caught Monk at Minton's Playhouse in 1947, Springsteen at The Stone Pony or The Pistols in London in 1976 (or not) . . .
Ted Polhemus' other works include Streetstyle, Fashion & Anti-fashion, Style Surfing and Body Styles.

Ted Polhemus' eagerly awaited autobiography/social commentary is every bit as entertaining and interesting as I hoped it would be. Ted effortlessly blends his sometimes painfully self aware, but often utterly hilarious, life story with his searingly insightful social observations to make a book I just couldn't put it down. Tremendous!
