These ten stories focus on people who came of age during the turbulent years of the latter 1960s. The events in this collection cover the years from the early sixties when most of the characters were children to the turn of the millennium when these same characters are in their early fifties. Readers will find here a quirky but honest look at the fancies, myths, and follies with which we surround ourselves as we age. With humor, a touch of the bizarre, and the subtle effects of a war that influenced those who fought it, as well as those who did not, these characters stumble toward the future in a world slowly moving ever closer to chaos and disorder. The collection is unified by the fascinating “back story” of Finch and Lauren, and their relationship over a forty-five year period. The ins and outs, ups and downs of this long-term love affair are all here among the bizarre events, the humor, the sadness, and the joy of a journey from the early nineteen sixties into a new millennium.
