Some brief overview of book
The author of the bestselling Red Lobster, White Trash, and the Blue Lagoon takes aim at the boomer generation in a hilarious work of social commentary. It's become fashionable to vilify baby boomers. Professional iconoclast and baby boomer Joe Queenan, however, takes a somewhat more benign position Yes, the baby boomers are venal, self-obsessed egomaniacs blighted by an insalubrious interest in things like the provenance of their neighbors' balsamic vinegar.
But this does not make them the "worst generation" - it just makes them the most annoying. In Balsamic Dreams, Queenan chronicles the evolution of his generation and critiques its current condition in chapters such as -J'Accuse a bold indictment of the boomers' greatest transgressions, past and present -Ten Days That Rocked the World in which Queenan identifies the precise moments things went awry (1 the release of Carole King's Tapestry) -Careful, the Staff Might Hear You an examination of the unspoken, nefarious alliance between baby boomers and Generation X -American History The B-Sides an alternative version of the Republic as played out with baby boomers in the starring roles A measured (if a tad cranky) assessment of a generation whose greatest sin lies in confusing lifestyle for life and pop culture for culture, Balsamic Dreams is fresh, funny, and irresistible.
