" Really funny....Again and again, Queenan neatly dices and skewers the pretensions, hypocrisies and fashion mistakes of the generation that came of age during the 1960s...."Balsamic Dreams" is, as we Boomers would say, just about as good as it gets." -- "The Washington Post" " A witty tirade." -- "The New York Times" " Full of rollicking and hilarious prose, and with this book Queenan performs a public service: He tells boomers to get over themselves." -- "USA Today" " Lunch-pail Voltaire for our times." -- "San Francisco Chronicle" " Often clever and rarely wrong....A finely, funny screed." -- "The Wall Street Journal" " A sardonic, often laugh-out-loud puncturing of Baby Boomer pretensions." -- "Kirkus Reviews "(starred review) " Queenan...dissects these ephemeral creatures asdelicately as an entomologist examining the innerworkings of a mayfly. He lays bare their failings, foibles, fatuities, flaws, and fads with a keen and unsentimental knife. The pages bristle with caustic wit and deadlyparody....A fully diverting diversion." -- "Library Journal" " A hilarious, quasi-maniacal extended rant against baby boomers....He pulls no punches." -- "Salon.com"
