about

"Living Room War is a book... that is going to be around a mite longer than anything now on television.... It's about us, the people -- how we are being shown, and seen, on that much-bruited 'idiot box' to which our children devote more time than anything else, except sleep". -- The Leader

This timeless collection of essays by the TV critic of The New Yorker provides a poetic look at 1960s television culture ranging from the Vietnam war to Captain Kangaroo, from the 1968 Democratic convention to televised sports.
