Have you ever wondered what the 60s were all about? The Berkeley Girl: Rendezvous in London, a sequel novella to The Berkeley Girl: In Paris, 1968 plus the three other stories in this unique collection will give you a good picture of the times. In Rendezvous in London, Janet McGill heads home to the US with a stop-off in London and a romantic interlude with her Berkeley boyfriend, Aaron. While Aaron pursues a job and a residency so he can keep out of the Vietnam War draft, Janet meets some unusual people--all of whom irritate him. Janet and Aaron clash over politics and world events, events that are affecting their lives. In the following three entertaining stories, we see different facets of the 1960s, the influence of the hippy culture, the rise of drugs, the dissonance between parents and children, the difficulty making moral choices. The seeds planted in the 1960s are still blooming today
