Time Trippers: The Nights of the Round Table – Capturing the Spirit of the Twenties:   Leave a comment

Capturing the Spirit of the Twenties! (One had to know where to go, the password or if all else fails, ask a cop where a fella can get a drink) 
The Florida Land Boom in its salad days neatly satirized by the always sagacious old Life magazine in 1925.
While my book is a snapshot of life in one week in 1927 I do not touch on the ballyhoo of advertising and the Florida Boom. Can’t have everything, but give it a read and hang out with Dorothy Parker, Benchley and the other wits of the Round Table as well as Babe Ruth, a young James Cagney and a mysterious Japanese Navy midshipman from their goodwill visit to N Y Harbor.


Fashion note: the woman on the cover wears her stockings rolled…..the fact that it is included on the cover cartoon and in so many other cartoons around 1922-1927 suggests that the daring fashion was quite widespread and ordinary not only for dance wear but in daily life as well. Cool!
To find out more, and have some fun along the way, take a walk back in time with us to the last week of September, 1927 to see Babe Ruth hit his record-breaking 60th home run. Hang out with the incomparably witty Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and Harpo Marx. Meet Dorothy’s friend, F. Scott Fitzgerald; run into a young and as yet unknown James Cagney, Ben ‘Bugsy’ Siegel, a certain Japanese Navy midshipman and many others.
If you liked ‘Midnight in Paris’ or ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and enjoy Jack Finney’s ‘Time and Again,’ then you might like this book too! Enjoy! Available on Amazon both Paperback and Kindle editions!
