Book Review of Wallflower at the Orgy

Wallflower at the Orgy
Sue-in-AZ avatar reviewed on + 108 more book reviews

I really enjoyed these essays. All written in the late 60's/early 70's, the essays evoke a long-forgotten era. So much "memory" of that time focusses on selfish, childish baby boomers. This collection of essays describes what was interesting to ordinary people at the time - not all that different from ordinary people today.

I especially enjoyed how the essays wove information together - information from one essay would be casually referred to in another essay. Definitely best if read in the order presented in the book!

Also interesting, the author spends two essays following director/producer Mike Nichols. Years later, Nichols went on to direct and produce the author's screen play for Silkwood.
