A new book titled Camp Camp: Where Fantasy Island Meets Lord of the Flies is an ode to the time of year when kids swarm to camps with appropriated Native American names and sweaty cabins filled with bunk beds and the spoils of independence.
Leisure suits, big hair and the Bee Gees are just part of the draw of a new book, Bar Mitzvah Disco. Essays from Jonathan Safran Foer, Sarah Silverman and others document bar and bat mitzvahs from the 1970s through the '90s.
