Going Going Gone: Vanishing Americana
by Susan Jonas
Publisher's Description
Remember paper dolls, automats or the smell of burning leaves on fall evenings? Too young to remember manual typewriters? If any of the above apply or you're just interested in vanishing ideas and objects from American culture then this is the book for you. An evocative, witty collection of essays it eulogizes the passing of over 70 cultural institutions that have disappeared or are headed for extinction. Humorously it professes that change is the only constant in daily life.
