Who would have guessed that the rise and fall of disco makes a great story? Whether you were there (I was) or you weren’t, this book is a lot of fun to read, and it’s thoroughly researched—this writer knows her pop music and pop culture. The story of disco has several strands (both musical and cultural), which the author elucidates with considerable flourish, while successfully regenerating the feel of the era. Moreover, she convincingly places disco in the context of broader social and political history.
