|What motivates twenty-something Myron and Susie, in 1971, to leave a Boston commune centered around a self-proclaimed Messiah and travel aross the country in their refurbished school bus to a back-to-the-land commune in the Pacific Northwest? Idealism? Rebellion? Apathy?
The war in Vietnam; Watergate and the Nixon scandal; open marriage and co-parenting; sex and drugs and the commune — what was all that about?
Overflowing with sights, insights, sentiments and sensations of the early ‘70s, this twenty-first century novel emerges as a crystalline illumination of that critical cusp in the American evolution.
