Overview

Hollywood to Vienna: A Trip and a Half by Donald Ellis Rothenberg

This book is a heady journey through the counterculture of the 60s and beyond. The narrator is the fortunate product of its particular manifestation in California, experiencing this unique spread of years in all its intensity at just the right age. He enjoys a childhood in Brentwood, near the beaches of Los Angeles where he went to school with the children of Hollywood celebrities, and moves, when older, to Venice Beach and Topanga Canyon. He then heads north to La Honda, Oakland and finally Berkeley, before winding up halfway around the globe in Vienna, Austria. The books narrative grew out of the cultural interface between his experiences in California and in Middle Europe’s Vienna, Austria, world renowned center of psychoanalysis and classical music.

wow, this is far out, far flung but not far fetched. heavy intonations of the path of past catching up in the present then diving into the future. what rothenberg does in this tale is juxtapose the conflicts and common threads of the counterculture now seen as a cultural context. he tells of the hippy jew in a vienna under a frightening return to old political ways. he tells of love. he tells of adventure. he tells of the passengers on the road along. in its intricate nostalgic sponteneous prose one is brought intp the movie into the book and onto the bus. this is a beat classic in the new beat up world. carlos n compty.
