Product description


"Heartfelt and well told tales of Lolas and Golden Star burgers and escaping the suburbs with one's dreams intact." - Geddy Lee, RUSH

“1982 is a funny and compelling read … a nostalgic love letter to the 1980s …examining the meaThning of cool, and the role music plays in who we become and who we love.” - The Globe and Mail

“A truly great read.” - Toronto Star

“[1982] is equal parts an exercise in Generation X nostalgia … romantic comedy and coming-of-age tale.” - National Post
