So this is the book I am reading- I actually have been reading it on and off for a long time, school has started and my reading time is minuscule. It was written by Joan Baez's sister Mimi Baez first husband Richard Farina. It was his life's work and the day the book was released he died in a motorcycle accident (no helmet). He was actually a chauvinistic masculinist who had to have everything his way, but he is a very clever writer. And the main character has many of his same traits oddly enough. It resonates with me because it takes place in the sixties on a college campus and of course it embodies the sex, drugs and free thinking of the time. You Dig?
