Sting-Ray Afternoons

Sting-Ray Afternoons

Steve Rushin’s childhood featured Bic Pen spitball launchers, Mr. Clean and Scrubbing Bubbles, light sabers and Schwinn bikes, and a father whose job was selling 8-track tapes for 3M. In STINGRAY AFTERNOONS, he uses the objects of ’70s America to tell the story of a father, and a family that seems right out of That ’70s Show — and begins to go its own ways at the dawn of the ’80s.

A rare talent able to blend the laugh out loud funny with tender moments, Rushin invites readers into his childhood. His observations of America during this period — its litterbugs, leaded gas, and cultural rebirth — add up to a powerful memoir and a poignant look at a family that you’ll want to share with every child of the ’70s you know.
