"Matt Pais deserves four stars for reintroducing us to many of the greatly talented but often unsung heroes of 1990s film. This is a terrific read."-RICHARD ROEPER

"Even if you're drowning in pop culture nostalgia, Pais' book is a fun, insightful and informative life raft."-ROBERT K. ELDER, author of The Film That Changed My Life

"Matt Pais captures an entire era succinctly and vividly. A fascinating read."-GABRIELLE ANWAR

"A love letter to my wonder years, and goes far beyond nostalgia. Every '90s kid will love it "-DREW FORTUNE, Vulture/Rolling Stone contributor, screenwriter, and author of No Encore Musicians Reveal Their Weirdest, Wildest, Most Embarrassing Gigs

"Jurassic Park." "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." "That Thing You Do " "Boy Meets World." "A League of Their Own." "Home Alone." "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers." "Doug." "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." "Newsies." "American Pie." "Cool Runnings." "The Mighty Ducks." These are not just movies and shows. They are legends, and for so many who grew up in the '90s, important markers of our childhood. If you could ask the stars behind these classics anything-with the purpose of taking conversations in different directions than any they've had before-what would you say? What would you learn?

In "Talk '90s with Me," each interview begins by exploring the subject's own '90s nostalgia and then poses topics they've never discussed. It creates a blend of memories and analysis that's fresh and unexpected, fun and thought-provoking, silly and profound-offering something new to remember (including exclusive, stump-your-friends trivia ) while honoring the movies and shows you'll never forget.

Maybe it feels like getting a drink with the stars; maybe it just feels like the kind of long phone call that people had a lot more in the '90s.
