If you love the spirit of the 1960s beat generation, then you should read this book by the aptly named Veronika Carnaby! [ no relation to the famous London Carnaby Street apparently! ] American writer and poet Veronika Carnaby has a vintage charm about her that naturally slips into her written works.
The story of Bohemia follows Valerie – a budding writer and a group of her 20 something friends Emmaline, Jimmy and Lester as they live out a typically 1960s vagrant existence from London to New York. The story ? – well its more of a timeline, exploring the direction of various individuals all seeking a meaning to their lives in the halcyon days of the 1960s.Valerie tells us that ” Vintage fashion and appearance remains rooted at the core of my story and is extensively referenced through the character’s descriptions, attitudes, and statements, as well as through mentions of classic beauties like Monroe, Lake, and Taylor.” So it sounds like Bohemia by Veronika Carnaby is right up the street of Glamourdaze readers.
