Summary
Nora Sayre, author of Sixties Going on Seventies and a National Book Award nominee, continues to explore our century's history as she turns her witty, insightful eye on the dramas of the 1950s. The major figures of the Cold War landscape, such as J. Edgar Hoover and Joseph McCarthy, are alive in these pages, but what makes Sayre's montage of narrative and documentary unique is her focus on the connections between private lives and public events. She follows some of the luminaries of the mid-century through the best and worst chapters of their lives
