""Fear and Loathing of Boca Raton"" is a bit like the response to a Zen Koan, a mindful extended reflection on the seemingly paradoxical wants and needs of the Question Authority Generation: a guided, self-guided, non-manual manual that captures the spirit and imagination of a spirited and imaginative generation still charting uncharted territory. In this fresh and present journey into the second Sixties (way way way out beyond the unholy trinity of Viagra, statins, and early bird specials), the reader finds resonant and funny and unpredictable licks on everything from post-fifty sex, drugs, and rock and roll to vivid recollections of Vietnam and Woodstock to compellingly impolitic advice about staying hip and relevant into and through the counter-culture's collective dotage.
