We gave it a B+

Ah, but it wasn’t a golden age — it was a muted olive age, a Tang orange age. And, now that Austin Powers has lampooned it to such widespread jollity, isn’t it time we put it to bed? A circular waterbed, of course — one of the key accessories (displayed here in stunning number) of that mythic creature: the leisure-suit-wearing, Vespa-riding, swizzle-stick-wielding, space-age single guy. He probably never even existed, but let’s hoist a Mai Tai to his demise and give this nifty, redundant book, Hi-Fi’s & Hi-Balls: The Golden Age of the American Bachelor, a dismissive pat on the rump. B+
