Don and Betty Draper live in a picture-perfect world. He is a hard-living advertising executive - a 'mad man' - on the fast track. She's a Bryn Mawr graduate and former fashion model, now a suburban princess and mother of three. If they're living out the American Dream, then why are they so unhappy? Why is their dream come true not enough? This book explores, analyses and celebrates the world of 'Mad Men' as cutting edge TV drama and popular phenomenon, and includes an interview with its Executive Producer Scott Hornbacher and an episode guide Every few years a new television program comes along to capture and express the zeitgeist. 'Mad Men' is now that show. Since premiering in July 2007, it's won many awards and is syndicated across the globe. Its imprint is evident throughout contemporary culture, from TV advertisements and magazine covers to designer fashions and online debate. Its creator Matthew Weiner, a former exec producer on 'The Sopranos', has created again compelling, complex characters, this time in the sophisticated go-go world of Madison Avenue during the 1960s, playing out the anxieties and prejudices of an era long neglected in popular culture. 'Mad Men' is a zeitgeist show of the early twenty-first century, this book demonstrates, partly because its characters are an earlier, confused and conflicted version of us, trying to make the best of a future unfolding at breakneck speed.
