It is said we all have a story to tell. Anthony Connolly's novella, 'Get Back', is a thinking man's (what makes you think?) work of fiction that portrays his central character, Michael Cross, following a stream-of-consciousness path of a man caught between the present and the doctrines that framed his youthful illusions. Connolly's protagonist bridges the gap separating Michener's wandering sojourners from 'The Drifters' to an older, and questionably, wiser generation. In context so much had changed, and so much hadn't, as Michael Cross follows the taillights leading him back to the past. As Cross travels with his daughter to the heartland of his youth he is caught in a time warp that returns him to the mantra of the '60's. This charming tale is punctuated with a cornucopia of 'whats?' that applies the wisdom of the writer to our own everyday lives. A must read for a rainy afternoon.Was this review helpful?
