In 1986 Richard Zacharias went back home for his 25th high school reunion, his first, out of curiosity and a sense of unfinished business. Zack, as his friends called him, was not prepared for the power and durability of long-buried feelings and relationships he encountered. The re-awakening grip of old friends, old flames, and an old, festering grudge grew in power and intensity in the following years through a series of reunitings, some arranged, some by happenstance. Zack's efforts to understand and address his relationship with his old girlfriend, Corey James, were intertwined with and affected by his involvement in a high-stakes conflict between industry and research that threatened to engulf and destroy them.

About the Author
David Caradoc's interest in literature and writing were stimulated first by his aunt who showered him with books and later by his high school English teacher and college English/literature professors who stuffed an eclectic mix of Shakespeare, Wolfe, Proust, Ginsberg, Kerouc, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, to name a few, down his impressible throat. But writing was only a sporadic hobby, as he pursued a career in science at the university and government agency levels for 40 years, satisfying his creative writing urges with scientific writing. Until he attended his 25th high school reunion, where the intensity of his exposure to old friends and old loves rekindled his interest in writing about people, relationships, situations, challenges, and resolution of old conflicts. It took him 32 years of on-again, off-again writing to complete his first novel, which is the first of five installments in a story of the coming of age of the Camelot generation in America.
