The Naughty Nineties (Hardback)

David Friend

-  

THE NAUGHTY NINETIES: The Triumph of the American Libido examines the scandal-strafed age when our public and private lives began to blur due to the rise of the web, reality TV, and the wholesale tabloidization of pop culture. In this comprehensive and often hilarious time capsule, David Friend--an editor at Vanity Fair--combines detailed reporting with first-person accounts from many of the decade's signal personalities, from Anita Hill to Monica Lewinsky, Lorena Bobbitt to Heidi Fleiss, Alan Cumming to Joan Rivers, Jesse Jackson to key members of the Clinton, Dole, and Bush teams. THE NAUGHTY NINETIES also uncovers unsung sexual pioneers, from the enterprising sisters who dreamed up the Brazilian bikini wax to the scientists who, quite by accident, discovered Viagra--and dozens more.
