GIACCO GIORDANO is insane! He has organic brain damage from too much LSD. He's harmless, but incurable. The State awards him a paltry stipend, but enough to contribute to the communal coffers of Hunga Dunga and to pursue enlightenment on a grand scale. This is Giacco's story about that brief but unforgettable time in our history when fl ower children were sure peace and love would guide the planet. It was only a matter of time. Or so they thought. What happened? Giacco would like to remind you. Time is running out. HUNGA DUNGA is often holy, often horny. Sometimes saintly, sometimes sexually explicit. From New York to Los Angeles, Lovelock to Woodstock, Tucson to Prince George, San Francisco to Twisp, and an amazing journey around the world in search of The Guru. You are in for some very strange rides. If you are lucky, you may just find the secret to god-realization. But make sure you are sitting under a blanket. ..".this is damned good stuff! Superlative dialogue. Written with a comfort and assuredness that vacuumed me into that world. Excellent, amusing and poignant..." - Colonel, Retired, U.S. Army Donald McRae, author of Montana Gold and Conflict of Interest "Polizatto had given the world an amazing (and accurate) picture of that very special time in history. He's woven such a sweet and beautiful story in such a conversational manner, that all the intellectual references gently drip like honey so that anyone can partake in the feast." - Lee Balan, author of Exhumations and Alien Journal ..".this book is defi nitely Kerouacian in it's scope, both on the human (cast of characters - and what characters!) and geographical scale. For those who have ears to hear, Hunga Dunga is a reminder of some of our deepest and hardest won truths." - Randolph Maxted, publisher, The Intriguist Literary and Arts Magazine PHIL POLIZATTO attended a very reputable university and graduated reputably.
