and Some Kind of Wonderful
are timeless tales of love, angst, longing, and self-discovery that illuminated and assuaged the anxieties of an entire generation.
Fondly nostalgic, filled with wit and surprising insights, don't you forget about me contains original essays from a skillfully chosen crop of novelists and essayists on the films' far-reaching effects on their own lives -- an irresistible read for anyone who came of age in the eighties (or just wishes they did).
