Description

So you think you know the 60's? Mesler's collage-novel of stories, poems, and "music reviews" will carry you through the entire rollicking and devastating gamut of that period, using the microcosm of Memphis, city of the blues--and city where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated to end what many viewed as the innocence of that time period. If there were such a genre as a coming of age collage, this would be it, for it gives us a ride that is by turns comic, frazzled, inane, and tragic.
