Tales From the Eighties
From time to time I will bring you book excerpts that describe an event -- sometimes momentous, sometimes mundane -- that is unique in its portrayal of life in the 1980s.

These narratives are condensed versions of short segments of books that I recommend. If you're interested in reading the entire work I encourage you to check your local library or bookstore, or search for a copy online.

The Eighties Club is not affiliated in any way with the authors or publishers of these works, nor do I necessarily agree with the viewpoints expressed in the excerpts.
