The Fabulous 50s: It was the era that gave us Brando and Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and Fats Domino, Grace Kelly and James Dean. Not to mention the Cold War and hula hoops, the exciting new medium of television and a new kind of music called ‘rock ‘n roll.’ As if that weren’t enough, the 1950s also brought us fallout shelters, the Korean War, sack dresses and ducktail haircuts.
For a kid like ‘BobbyRandall,’ coming of age in the deep South of the
mid-twentieth century meant colorful characters, charming venues and an unforgettable way of life. From the legendary black bottom pie at Weidmann’s Restaurant to ‘making out’ at the Royal Drive-In–from a pool shark named Lenard to the mad dentist, ‘Doctor Death,’ you’ll get Lost in the 50s in Meridian, Mississippi in Robert R Randall’s lively, poignant and hilarious memoir.
