"Based on a true story, and the stories of others, the book follows the young man into the year 1969 as he struggles with the decisions expected of him by elders and demanded of him by life. The story leads to a factory job in the pine barrens of his native New Jersey, thence overseas, to the stimulating atmosphere of a youthful community of international wanderers in Great Britain, to an Ireland torn by age old divisions, to France, whose gendarmerie remain brooding and vengeful in the wake of the bloody Sorbonne riots of the previous year, to the Spain of Generalíssimo Francisco Franco, and finally to the turbulence of North Africa."
