Surrounded by Sixties American culture and inspiration lately; I’m intrigued! Finished season 4 of Mad Men last night, grooving to a soul playlist on Spotify, and adding books about/from the era to my Goodreads list. About to start reading Joan Didion’s “The White Album”–a collection of essays–for my Biography of a City: Los Angeles class. I’ve also added several books about race and resistance issues during the era to my reading list. I would love some recommendations for essays, fiction and non-fiction literature, documentaries, films, anything at all about the “Long Sixties”!
I’m open to anything but I am most intrigued by these topics:
- music (soul, rock)
- race and resistance issues
- women’s movement
- growth of media and channels
- development of California culture
