The Boomer

Alfred A. Knopf Publishers, New York, New York, 2000

Description

The manuscript for Mary Asher’s tale of Baby Boomer angst seemed to be just the book that Chuck Anderson’s CSA Archive (that magnificent achievement of illustrative archeology) was made for. For me it wasn’t even a question, but the author initially had doubts about having illustrations throughout. In the end, it’s impossible to imagine the text without the drawings having nearly as much impact.
