Okay, so there's that show on MTV. And there are plenty of novels that explore the sixties and even e seventies (nobody has a good picture from the 79s), but I'm blanking on novels based on a love of the 80s culture.
So here I expose my cultural ignorance and As if you know of any (can not have been written during the 80s, preferably published after 2000 to qualify as a truly retro look).
I mean, the music I used to go get drunk to and try and pick up chicks to is now considered "classic rock" and is pillaged for musak. I'm not saying it was a wonderful magical time, far from it. Bt there was a lot of fun to be had back then. It was the last burning of free love before HIV came along and spoiled the party. There was decadance to be had for the taking. And big hair bands with screaming guitar solos.
