cover of NYT's Magazine in May, 2008
I loved this show last summer;
it starts again on July 27th.
The show is a great period piece from the early 60's -
before the explosion
of new mores, new music, and women's liberation
to get into the mood read
The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit
written in 1955 by Sloan Wilson
According to Wikipedia this book is
"a novel about the American search for purpose
in world dominated by business"
(fun fact: author worked at Time, Inc)
and get the 1956 movie on netflix
with Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones
NYT's review last summer July 19, 2007
