Appalled by life in our times, the narrator recounts innumerable artifacts from a now vanished America (civility, idealism, Elvis Presley, well-made appliances). She is also exquisitely attuned to the absurdities of our culture- her acute observations illuminate every subject, from the dangers of microwave ovens to the disappearing ozone layer.
