The minute the alarm clock punctures our dreams, we go to work. We have convinced ourselves that productivity is the name of the game and that leisure is a notorious sign of laziness. In Endangered Pleasures, Barbara Holland insists that enough is enough. It's time to kick back, relax, and relish the truly good things in life. "Delightfully quirky".--The Boston Globe.
From the Publisher:
The minute the alarm clock punctures our dreams, we go to work. We have convinced ourselves that productivity is the name of the game and that leisure is a notorious sign of laziness. In Endangered Pleasures, Barbara Holland insists that enough is enough. It's time to kick back, relax, and relish the truly good things in life. "Delightfully quirky".--The Boston Globe.Recapturing the lost, forgotten, unappreciated pleasures in life, a wistful celebration recalls the joys of ice-cold martinis, real tomatoes, and bad words--before the days of no smoking, no fat, safe sex, and lite everything. 15,000 first printing.

Praise

Economist
"Barbara Holland has fun, like a naughty child, deliberately enjoying whatever the 1990s have decreed to be No Good; and, worse, persuading her readers to try them before the cultural thought-police cause them to disappear." 07/15/1995
