As a chronicler of the good life, as lived by the upper classes and aristocracy in the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s, Slim Aarons was a man obsessed. Born in New Hampshire in the early years of the century, he was a classic outsider looking in, and as such he idealized the rich. With the publication of his book “A Wonderful Time” in 1974, this vanishing world was crystalized.
