Seventies Potpourri

The seventies were kind of a funky decade to live through, but were some darn good reads to be had. Many of them reflected the turbulent social, cultural and historical trends of the times, but they have nonetheless aged well. This list includes both fiction and nonfiction, please add titles as you see fit! It's also not super picky about the timeline - some books are "about" the seventies, and some are on the margins, but partake of the seventies vibe - at least in my mind!

Fred It is somewhat mystifying to me how all those comic books got on here, but there you have it.

A librarian can remove them if you want. I don't like the comic books either.
