by Gary Dreibelbis
Publication Date: 15/06/2018
RRP  $43.53 $41.50
A must read for any and all boomers of a certain age growing up in the Washington, D.C. area. Heavens to Warner Wolf the author doesn't need the videotape to recall so many great memories. - Leonard Shapiro, Former Sports Editor and Washington Redskins' beat writer for the Washington Post.

More than a trip down Memory Lane. Gary Dreibelbis' chronicle of growing up in Washington is a journey through shared memories to common roots. He revisits a time and place that seems both simple and complex, recalling JFK, the Beatles, fallout shelters, and a District of real neighborhoods and places as varied as classrooms, the Jefferson Memorial, Walt Disney, and Shirley Povich. This terrific narrative is both personal and universal. - Bill Knight, Former Arts Editor of Washington Weekly.

What a beautiful story, that takes me back to the magic of a lost America, when kids still delivered newspapers, when television was young, and families always ate together. Reading this, I can smell the tang of root beer floats and hear the hum of those old black and white TVs -- I can imagine the ink stains from the Post on Gary's fingers. This is a precious story of an everyday American family in the nation's capital, growing up in a time when current events would change them, and the country, forever. What Gary has written here is a wonderful love-letter to my birthplace, the District of Columbia. - Steve Osunsami, ABC News
