Now that the inaugural Ballon Juice Book Discussion Chapter can see the light at the end of the tunnel for NIXONLAND (four more weeks! four more weeks!), I’d like to (re)propose Gail Collins’ When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present as our next book. (Or one of our next books, if any of the other front-pagers find time in their schedules to present their own agenda.) Because, despite everything, for some of us life really has improved since the economic “Golden Age” of the 1950s. Who else might be interested in a weekly discussion starting in mid-May?
What other books would you suggest as alternatives?
Since this is an open thread, what else needs discussing?
