Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beers' powerful memoir recounts his family's world, the world of middle-class suburbia, from Sputnik to the present, and writes of the great institutions--the government, the multinational corporations, the church, the suburban tract home neighborhood--in which his family put their faith, and how that faith was betrayed.

Synopsis:

Beers “important...fascinating” book(Los Angeles Times) shows how suburban California came to epitomize the american Dream-until its affluent complacency was shattered by downsizing, anxiety, and distrust.

The radio show This American Life did an episode (#69, Dreamhouse) in which David Beers reads an excerpt from this book. You can download it at thisamericanlife.org -- it's a great story and a good preview to the book.
