Matt will be signing copies of “The Definitive Golden Girls Cultural Reference Guide” at Bagatelle Books in Asheville, North Carolina, on Saturday, June 18, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Meticulously researched episode by episode, “The Definitive Golden Girls Cultural Reference Guide” is an eye-opening, illuminating encyclopedia of “the who, the how, and the ha!” of thousands of topical jokes from the show’s 180 episodes. From Joe Isuzu to Socrates, Alan Alda to Shinola, Martha Raye to Madge, and Ishtar to Tattletales, at long last fans of The Golden Girls will finally be saying, “Oh, now I get it!”
“I’ve been watching The Golden Girls since it was released, and in many ways it is timeless, but there are so many references to then-current people, places and events that really anchor it in its 1980s-1990s era,” Browning said. “This book is meant to serve as a guide so viewers can follow along and come to understand those dated jokes as they were meant to be understood.”
The book is structured episode by episode, featuring snippets of dialogue to provide context to the reference, followed by an explanation. An alphabetical index is also included. The book was released last fall from Lyons Press, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield. It retails for $24.95.
Bagatelle Books is located at 428 C Haywood Road, Asheville, North Carolina.
