The Totally Sweet ‘90s
By Gael Fashingbauer Cooper & Brian Bellmont
Softcover, 245 pages
$14.95 / Perigree Trade Paperback

If you think “nostalgia” is something that only happened back in the ’50s or ’60s, you must have forgotten all gnarly fun—Beanie Babies! “Forrest Gump”! The “I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up” commercials!—of the ’90s! This informative, entertaining little A-to-Z rundown of the movies, music, TV shows and advertising, fashions, fads, snack foods, toys, trinkets, and technology from that not-so-long-ago decade is a celebration of all from that era that was, in the parlance of its times, so “totally sweet.”
