Sting-Ray Afternoons : A Memoir Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

ONE OF AMAZON'S BEST BOOKS OF 2017A wild and bittersweet memoir of a classic '70s childhoodIt'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.
