Two years ago, I announced that I was working on a new book called which would be a look at the teen movies of the 1980s.

Today, I can announce that My new book Brat Pack America: A Love Letter to 80s Teen Movies has just been published and I’m Footloose-dancing which excitement. 

 

Brat Pack America is a nonfiction look at The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Heathers, Real Genius and Dirty Dancing, about where these movies were made and what that said about that moment in America, in pop culture and why they are as loved today as they were then. It's contains about 45 of your favorite movies from the 1980s and a ton of behind the scenes info and trivia. I also talked to some of your favorite actors, writers and directors responsible for these great movies, including the geniuses behind Fast Times at Ridgemont High, House Party and Heathers

The book also looks great thanks to the team at Rare Bird Books in Los Angeles, my publishers and friends, who have worked so hard to assure it a fighting chance at a bookstore, on a nightstand and in a purse and backpack near you. The cover looks like this

I'll be touring across America this fall and next year in support of the book. See you on the highways and byways of Brat Pack America and on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. 

The book may be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powells, Indiebound or your local independent bookstore. 

If you've like a signed copy, please order from Booksmith in San Francisco where I will be sending out books personalized to you by me. 

Thank your for support, dear friends. Let's make this DeLorean fly.
