PURGATORY & PARADISE: SASSY '70S SUBURBIA & THE CITY -- MERYL MEISLER. Bizzare Publishing, Brooklyn, 2015. 256 pp. with 242 ills. 22 x 29 cm. ISBN 9780991014132 In English.
Publisher's description: Purgatory & Paradise: Sassy '70s Suburbia & The City is a photographic memoir of a uniquely American story, sweet and sassy with a pinch of mystery. It juxtaposes intimate images of home life on Long Island alongside NYC street and night life -- the likes of which have never been seen. Quirky, nostalgic and a bit naughty, it's a genuine cultural capsule of a decade that captivates today's generation. The photos and stories illustrate Meryl's coming of age: The South Bronx, suburbia, The Mystery Club, dance lessons, Girl Scouts, the Rockettes, the circus, school, mitzvahs, proms, weddings, gay Fire Island, the Hamptons, feminists, happy hookers, CBGB, Punks, Disco, After Hours and Go-Go Bars, Jewish and LGBT Pride, street life, home theatrics, holidays, friendship, family and love.
