Recensioni

Bel libro, davvero. Forse troppo centrato sulla vita e realtà americana, credo non ci siano più di 2 o 3 parole sull'Europa: ma alcuni momenti sono stupendi (i migliori musicisti americani, ad esempio, o il problema razziale). Bellissime foto, la maggior parte non recenti.
Se si è statunitensi e la si pensa in un certo modo secondo me è un libro da comprare.

Mi aspettavo una scrittura più avvincente. Troppo prolisso anche se i fatti raccontati sono sempre interessanti. Vengono chiarite molte vicende di quegli anni.
