    Interesting Look Back At The '70's

    In October 1976, Dodie Katague is a freshman at Berkeley University in California. This is the age of the hippie, free love, drugs, sex and rock 'n roll. The problem is, Dodie is missing it all by living at home and commuting to school each day. On his birthday, he manages to talk his parents into allowing him to live on-campus. But where to live? It's too late in the semester to get into a dorm and he didn't pledge a fraternity. Then he hears about Cloyne Court, a student co-op building.

    Cloyne Court is a rundown building that is inhabited and managed totally by students. The rent is cheap, with students doing various jobs to pay part of their rent. It is also co-ed. Co-ed as in male and female roommates--roomies if the relationship is platonic; bunkies if it is a romantic relationship. Showers are communal and nude sunbathing is a common occurrence. To a man who has led a sheltered life up to now, this is a whole new world, and one that he will have to figure out how to fit into.

    Cloyne Court is an interesting memoir by Dodie Katague of his years at Berkeley and his residence at the co-op. He learns to get along with people of all persuasions, and also has his first serious love. Katague discovers sex and all the joys and complications it can bring. Baby boomers especially will love reading this memoir and reminiscing about their own college days. Younger generations will read it and get an eye-opening new insight into their parents and that stodgy old guy in the next cubicle. This book is recommended for memoir readers and those interested in the culture of the 1970's and early 80's.

    Derek grows up...

    Book Synopsis In 1946, the "real" all male "Animal House" was born when Cloyne Court become a student co-op. But the real story begins when Cloyne Court went co-ed in 1972 with the arrival of sixty-two women. Katague's sexy, reveal-all memoir takes place in the late 70s, soon after the women moved in. All it takes is one kiss to transform animals into horny princes. My Thoughts Cloyne Court is one of those books you lose yourself inside as you read through it. Easy conversational style memoir about people who lived in each others pockets for 4 years while going to college at UC Berkley. The place where parties were larger than life, relationships were made and broken, rumors and tall tales abounded and most of all where young Derek learned that books cannot beat the experience of living day to day amidst a diverse group of individuals. This is a truly interesting tale. It has some very likable as well as some obnoxious characters, the antics that the students pull are not as wild as some people would think but instead have a flavor of innocence and naivete that is missing in the youth of today. Late 70's to early 80's is a time lots of us remember with nostalgia, some years more vividly than others. For anyone looking for a story that has a lot of different characters whose lives intertwine and whose youthful shenanigans are entertaining and heartwarming than this is the read for you. The author Dodie Katague has created a novel which showcases youth in America in a way that is both funny and at times poignantly heartbreaking. A truly excellent read!
