The Burning of Desire is an intimate and dramatic rendering of life in the United States, 1943 to 2013. It follows one man's journey through political, cultural and social upheaval and the all-pervasive influences of television, movies, books, sports, art, popular music, grand ideas, sexual confusion and drugs- everything that turned the life. It is the autobiography of a generation, not because it honestly witnesses the country during those years but because it illumines how one soul, despite these influences and because of them, finds its way to fulfillment, wisdom and peace.
The pivotal moment of the life occurs center stage at the defining political assassination of the century.
Alienation: Book Two of The Burning of Desire, 1960-1968, is the young man's coming of age amidst the turmoil of the Sixties in Berkeley, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
