Andrew Hurley on "Diners, Bowling Alleys, and Trailer Parks"

October 12, 2003

Andrew Hurley’s book is “Diners, Bowling Alleys, and Trailer Parks: Chasing the American Dream in Postwar Consumer Culture.”  Hurley talks with Jim Fleming about the history of the diner.  He says they were working class restaurants that developed their own outlaw chic while still appealing to the middle class.
