About the book:

In the 1960s, Esquire magazine practically invented New Journalism. This anthology of Esquire's greatest hits covers all the phenomena of America's most uproarious decade: from the rise of JFK to his assassination, from baton twirling at Ole Miss to the Chicago Democratic Convention riots, from Vietnam to the civil rights protests, from the first Happening to the last hippie, from the Segs to the Beats. Includes such classics as: Saul Bellow, "Literary Notes on Khrushchev;" Gay Talese, "Frank Sinatra Has a Cold;" Norman Mailer, "Superman Comes to the Supermarket;" Terry Southern, "How I Signed Up at $250 a Month for the Big Parade Through Havana Bla-Bla-Bla and Wound Up in Guatemala with the CIA;" Tom Wicker, "Kennedy Without Tears;" Anthony Lukas, "The Life and Death of a Hippie;" Timothy Leary, "Turning on the World;" Tome Wolfe, "Las Vegas (What?). Las Vegas (Can't Hear You! Too Noisy). Las Vegas!!!;" Garry Wills, "Martin Luther King Is Still on the Case." And many others...
