1976 plucks the deepest chords of America’s Bicentennial year. It exposes the guts of our country’s political, historical and cultural machine in a prose that matches the rhythms of horror, joy and sheer madness in our national psyche. Volpert’s vision of America rolls in simultaneously from the past and the future, with a posse of grand ghosts, including Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford (and his dog liberty), Howard Hughes, Gore Vidal and Sid Vicious. 1976 is a book that heralds a grand new genre.
