MEDIA REVIEWS

"A charming, evocative, nostalgic paean to a mid-century way of life that has largely vanished, and Bruce Clayton captures its innocence and its essence so well that even those who got here too late for the fifties can share in the vicarious pleasures of that deceptively simple time." John Egerton"
