Library Journal Review

Gottlieb talked to a diverse group of Sixties ``survivors'' and recorded their thoughts about the era and how it affected the course of their lives. She adds her own thoughts on where they were then as it relates to where they are nowas baby-boomers enter middle-ageand in so doing makes a successful attempt at putting that decade into historical perspective. In her words, her ``book is . . . about . . . the ways we went too far . . . the friends we made and lost . . . remembrances of the Vietnam War and the anti-war movement . . . of drug and spiritual quests, of new forms of love and work. It's high time to tell our stories, and to say, if we can what their moral is.'' A nice companion volume is David Wallechinsky's Midterm Report: the class of `65 ( LJ 7/86). Libraries will want this. If you can afford Wallechinsky, too, all the better. Nostalgia Book Club alternate..Rosellen Brewer, Monterey Cty. Lib., Seaside, Cal. (c) Copyright 2010.
