Luck of the Draw whisks you from the baseball playgrounds of Little League in the conservative Fifties through the Summer of Love and the protests of the radical Sixties and into the jungles of Southeast Asia during last days of the Vietnam war in the decadent Seventies with four idealistic boomers who are looking for love and trying to change the world. Theirs are stories of growing up with Cold War paranoia, assassinations, civil rights marches, hippies, sexual revolution, women’s liberation, the draft, anti-war protests, and sex and drugs and the all-time greatest rock ‘n’ roll.
About the Author
William “Scott” Morrison has been chasing the get-rich-quick American Dream for many decades while writing stories and songs on the side. Now in his late youth, he is channeling a lifelong interest in politics and history into telling the story of the times through historical fiction. Luck of the Draw, his second novel, follows the lives of the same characters who in his first novel, The Energy Caper, or Nixon in the Sky with Diamonds, thrive in a luckier world where there was no Vietnam war. He lives quietly with his wife in the wine country of California.
