Author Andrea Warner’s short book that packs a punch, The Time of My Life (ECW Press $19.95), delves into the enduring legacy of the film Dirty Dancing, which defied low expectations upon its release in 1987 to become a cultural phenomenon. Warner explores the film’s multifaceted themes, including its portrayal of abortion rights, class dynamics and political activism, alongside its iconic soundtrack and memorable chemistry between the lead characters. By highlighting the film’s feminist and socially relevant elements, Warner demonstrates why Dirty Dancing continues to captivate audiences over 30 years later, proving it to be more than just a summer romance or dance movie, but a timeless exploration of complex issues. ‎ 9781770417410
