Book; Living in the 1960s by Noeline Brown
This product is currently sold out.
Written by well known and much loved TV actor and star Noeline Brown, here's a great book for those of us who lived through probably the most tumultuous decade of the last century!
The sixties was a decade of safari suits, shift dresses, capri pants, and droopy moustaches. Of multi-purpose French onion soup, junket, tripe, and Bloody Marys. Of success on the world's sporting stage and social and political stirrings at home, as Baby Boomers and their parents began to see the world differently.
Award-winning TV actor Noeline Brown cut a groovy figure in the sixties. She confesses to us early on in Living the 1960s that she: was a bit of a snob ... I preferred to listen to jazz and performance poetry, to appreciate the lyrics of Bob Dylan and to watch foreign films. I wore a lot of black and dramatic eye makeup, and frequented windowless coffee lounges where people smoked heavily and played chess.
It's a big book, containing more than 160 photos, and combining entertaining social history, fact boxes, and lively anecdotes, Living the 1960s paints a picture of a decade that didn't just swing; it twisted, stomped, and screamed. For Noeline, as for a generation of Australians, it was the most important decade of her life.
I thoroughly enjoyed Noeline's account of the 60s, loved the old photos and thoroughly recommend this book to you!
