One man's struggle to survive a week watching commercial television. A cross between Harlan Ellison's TV columns and Marshall McLuhan. Issued in 1968, Sopkin at the time an editor at a major publishing company, locked himself into his apartment, rented 5 television sets to go along with the small Sony he owned, turned them all on, and watched for seven days and seven nights, doing practically nothing else other than jotting down his viewed thought.
From the morning sermonette at the start of the day, all day long soap operas, Joe Payne, the news, Ed Sullivan, The Monkees, The Fugitive, The Millionaire, to the end of the night watching Johnny Carson, The Late Late Show movies, and everything in-between. This is his report on his mind bending marathon TV watching. A fantastic look into 1960's mid-century modern age television viewing, glances, habits, TV shows - some familiar, some long forgotten.
The Cleveland Press observed: This is a very funny book, a very sad book, a very frightening book...by any standard, Sopkin is a brave man.
In excellent condition, tight binding of the book cover to pages, tight spine, tight pages, slight yellowed pages from age, with the normal small amount of vintage wear, essentially not detracting from the enjoyment of this interesting slab of pop culture.
