It follows one mans journey through political, cultural and social upheaval and the pervasive influences of television, film, books, sports, art, popular music, grand ideas, sexual confusion and drugs- everything that turned the life. It is the autobiography of a generation, not only because it is an honest witness to the country during these years, but because it illumines how one soul, in spite of these influences and because of them, finds its way to fulfillment, wisdom and peace. The pivotal moment of the life occurs center stage at the defining political assassination of the century.
