This book is a reminiscence that celebrates Venice, California's heyday as an alternative community and what survives from it in the present. Many wonder how much longer this city's creative state of mind can persist as gentrification threatens to transform this legendary bohemian Mecca into merely another beach resort for the propertied. The author discusses these threats, but finds in the consciousness of remaining alternative residents a spirit of resistance to these pressures.
