A snippet from this month’s book:

It’s a story of the 1970s. Of a road trip in a wood-paneled station wagon, with the kids in the way-back, singing along to the Steve Miller Band. Brothers waking up early on Saturday mornings for five consecutive hours of cartoons and advertising jingles that they’ll be humming all day. A father – one of 3M’s greatest and last eight-track-salesman fathers – traveling across the country on the brand-new Boeing 747, providing for his family but wanting nothing more than to get home.

It’s Steve Rushin’s story: of growing up within a ’70s landscape populated with Bic pens, Mr. Clean and Scrubbing Bubbles, lightsabers, and those oh-so-coveted Schwinn Sting-Ray bikes. Sting-Ray Afternoons paints an utterly fond, psychedelically vibrant, laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of an exuberant decade. With sidesplitting commentary, Rushin creates a vivid picture of a decade of wild youth, cultural rebirth, and the meaning of parental, brotherly, sisterly, whole lotta love.
