Sixties flashbacks

Three books originally published in the 1960s are appearing in new editions.

Every Frenchman Has One (Crown Archetype) by Olivia de Havilland is the Oscar-winning actor's entertaining memoir about marrying a Frenchman and moving to Paris; first published in 1963.

The Quiet Crisis (Ig Publishing) by Stewart Udall, with an introduction by President John F. Kennedy and preface by Sen. Tom Udall, is an influential and remarkably prescient analysis (first published in 1966) of the American relationship to nature by the Secretary of the Interior under Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson.

Valley of the Dolls 50th Anniversary Edition (Grove Press) by Jacqueline Susann brings back the scandalous 1966 bestseller in all its tawdry glory, an over-the-top, drug-laced, ambition-driven tale of four young women trying to break into show business in New York City.
