The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby. In his first book -- a collection that launched its author as America's foremost entertainer with something to say -- Wolfe introduced us to the Sixties, to extravagant new styles of life that had nothing to do with the "elite" culture of the past. The Twist, the Beatles, the Bouffant Hairdos, the Kar Kustomizers (title piece), and much more are brilliantly given their place in history, and the older cultural guard, struggling to preserve the forms of its status against the rising tide of barbarism, receives ruthless and hilarious scrutiny. Illustrated by the author's own "Metropolitan Sketchbook," The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby was a dazzling debut.
