This adventure begins in 1946 in a small Arkansas town, and moves through the tumultuous Chicago of the '60s and '70s from one hallucinogenic episode to another. The author's life is laid bare, oscillating between innocence and decadence, cynicism and idealism, hope and despair, it illustrates the chaos and complexity of the times.
This surrealist memoir of growing up during Cold War times is an honest man's attempt to address life in a chaotic universe, in all its joy and horror, degradation and redemption. Drawn in the raw style of a modern mind, and with something herein to offend every sensibility, it may not be for the faint of heart. Hieronymus Bosch meets William S. Burroughs, Thomas Wolfe, and Nelson Algren, and they sing a love song to life. This is an account of one intrepid psychic explorer careening through a montage of kaleidoscopic visions.
