Former “Newsweek” pop music critic Karen Schoemer tries to figure out why the sweet, innocent pop music of the 1950s -- peddling true love, living happily ever after -- fell quickly off the charts. To find the answers, she embarks on a journey in search of some of the stars of the 1950s. She tracked down 7 former pop idols of the late 1950s and early 1960s: Connie Francis, Fabian, Pat Boone, Patti Page, Tommy Sands, Georgia Gibbs, and Frankie Lane. She became privy to their inner lives and immersed herself in their music. Her book, full of humor, insight, and unflinching honesty, explores the intersections of our private lives and pop culture, and broadens our understanding of a crucial moment in our history.
