As a Generation X'er from the Midwest, I read it with a mix of amazement at the antics (The Mad Bomber and the Mrs., Upstairs Junkie and Downstairs Junkie, How to Remove the Floor of an Apartment), admiration at the Chutzpah (Allan and his friends are a confident yet cagey crew), and I'll confess, a mild sense of being appalled at some of the excesses of the early 70s. (I'm a kind of uptight guy).
All that said, the impression that I leave the book with, and what will stay with me, is the sense of Freedom the book has. There are indications throughout the book that the author was working his ass off as a reporter, a husband, a father and in keeping the "Pepperland" Apartment Complex running, but I had the feeling throughout that he and those around him were doing exactly what they wanted to do, any time they wanted. That's something to celebrate.
Great book by one of my favorite authors, and it leaves me wondering exactly what happened between Lucky in Cyprus and Tales of the Blue Meanie... Hopefully a Midquel will come out soon to tie some of the loose ends together.
You can not read this book without saying to yourself, is this stuff true. Well there is little if any exaggeration going on here. I know this to be true, I am one of the characters. I'm Jay. I bet Alan could write volumes on these few short years that we where all together on Washington St in Venice, California.
Thanks, Allan. It's a great read.
