For the baby-boomer generation, the 1950s was a decade characterized by Liberty bodices, suspender belts, black Bakelite phones, Ford Populars, Sooty puppets, and Meccano sets, while the 1960s featured Ready Steady Go, Radio Luxembourg, "going to work on an egg," Lambrettas, mini cars, Biba, and The Beatles. This nostalgic volume collects personal reminiscences from baby-boomers from all over Britain that recall the happy, changing decades of the mid-century. Featuring celebrity contributions from Richard Branson, Patricia Hodge, Maureen Lipman, Jon Snow, Joanna Lumley, Sir David Hare, Simon Hoggart, Robert Lacey, Twiggy Lawson, Richard Neville, Lord Saatchi, and Sue Townsend, these funny, poignant, and sometimes sad vignettes will take you back to the 1950s childhood innocence and the fab days of the 1960s.
