P J O'Rourke,: The Baby Boom : How It Got That Way and It Wasn't My Fault and I'll Never Do It Again
P.J. O'Rourke began writing funny things in 1960s "underground" newspapers, became editor-in-chief of "National Lampoon," then spent 20 years reporting for "Rolling Stone" and "The Atlantic Monthly" as the world's only trouble spot humorist, going to wars, riots, rebellions, and other "Holidays in Hell" in more than 40 countries. Now O'Rourke, born at the peak of the Baby Boom, turns his keen eye on himself and his 75 million accomplices in making America what it is today. With laughter as an analytical tool, he uses his own very average, if sometimes uproarious experiences as a key to his exceptional age cohort. He writes about the way the post-war generation somehow came of age by never quite growing up and created a better society by turning society upside down."THE BABY BOOM: How it Got That Way... And It Wasn't My Fault... And I'll Never Do It Again" is at once a social history, a group memoir of collectively impaired memory, a hilarious attempt to understand his generation's messy hilarity, and a celebration of the mess the Baby Boom has made.
No one really likes brushing their hair, but the girl in this delightfully anarchic tale finds out the hard way just what it means to ignore your mother's pleading to 'brush your hair'! First there is one little bird making the hair hard to brush, then another and another, and soon the girl and her mother find their day becomes an avian nightmare. It's Pumpkin Day at the Burrow. Mrs. Rabbit has prepared a delicious and beautiful feast, but something is missing: the pumpkin! Peter, Lily, Benjamin, and Cotton-tail set out to get a pumpkin from Mr. McGregor's garden. But when they finally have the pumpkin out of the garden, they can't stop it from rolling all around the woods. The pumpkin bumps into Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, Jemima Puddle-duck, Mr. Bouncer, and even The Baby Boom : How It Got That Way and It Wasn't My Fault and I'll Never Do It Again ebook pdf Mr. Tod! Will the rabbits be able to stop the pumpkin in time for dinner?
