Rosa Harris, national award-winning journalist, editor, talk show host and journalism professor, has crafted a collection of insightful, humorous and touching essays on the baby boomer generation that will leave you smiling, laughing and reminiscing on the times of your life. Baby boomers will see themselves in many of Rosa's musings on the most amazing generation ever!- Michael B Davie, author Poetry for the Insane I've known Rosa Harris for 25 years, starting when she worked at a city magazine in Montreal. It was in the final few months before Generation X was published and there was no awareness in the culture that something, anything, might want to cleave away from the baby boomer's stranglehold on all things generational... She's one of the few boomers who is fully aware of just how annoying and self-absorbed her generation really is... fully aware of the historical forces that had to align to create the most... narcissistic birth cohort in the history of our planet, yet she can really tap into this awareness to create something sensitive and smile-inducing. I think you'll enjoy this book. - Douglas Coupland, author, Generation X "Rosa Harris has assembled a series of very thought-provoking apercus of her times and generation. They are all from different angles and none is ponderous or over-long. The result is a very pleasing, very easy, and often poignant, read." - Conrad Black
