Madcap maven of all things modern Charles Phoenix unveils his new book at the Addicted to Americana: Celebrating Classic & Kitschy American Life & Style Launch Party. The staunchest of the staunch when it comes to celebrating a time when everyone thought they'd soon either be living on other planets or dying as radioactive mutants, Phoenix fills Addicted to Americana to overflowing with ravishing images of roadside attractions, automotive marvels and scads of other midcentury masterpieces, here in the sumptuous guts of a former Twinkies factory, serenaded by roller rink organist Dominic Cangelosi and fueled by cake and punch courtesy of the Phoenix Test Kitchen.
