Dave Wood's Book Report, May 6, 2009

Email

If you grew up in the 1950s, you're going to love this book. If you didn't grow up in the 1950s, you better get hold of this book and learn that the 1950s wasn't the dull, Betty Crocker, suburbanite world that it is often portrayed as.

Minneapolis lawyer and former city council member Paul Zerby -- like me -- reached adulthood in the 1950s and his first novel delineates that very strange time with warmth, gusto and an assured hand with the details of life back then.
