Anyone who's old enough to remember the Age of Aquarius, drive-in movies, and only three TV networks should appreciate - no, make that "dig" - Escaping Innocence: A Story of Awakening. Peace. David Justin, an Italian-Catholic, height-challenged youth, desperately trying to escape the bonds of sexual repression and adolescent innocence that hold him captive-in the '60s. The journey of enlightenment is both laugh-aloud funny and gut-wrenchingly emotional, as David discovers that coming-of-age is more than just a five-minute roll in the hay culminating in a thirty-second celebratory shower. The book is filled with universal characters and rip-roaring adventures, including a hilarious spring break trip to Key West, Florida, involving a gay artist, goats, fleas, and...well, you get the picture.
