Kodak Elegy
A Cold War Childhood

William Merrill Decker

Cloth $29.95    |    978-0-8156-0972-8    |    2012

"Hot rods. Rock-and-roll. Race relations. Urban decay. Suburban contentment and strain. Decker’s Kodak Elegy strides the tightrope of 1960s America with passion and skill. His remembered Rochester is tantalizingly rich with character and change."—Alyson Hagy, author of Ghosts of Wyoming: Stories

"Beneath the sheer ordinariness of Decker’s childhood lurks the horror of democracy’s failures: the relentless decline of Eastman Kodak and other industrial giants; the deterioration of America’s urban core; unresolved racial conflict."—John Carlos Rowe, University of Southern California
