A great read — and a great way to get a little perspective on the upcoming conventions.
The audio version of this 1968 book just came out yesterday. Having preordered, I got started yesterday. If Trump and Hillary are overpresent in your head, stop up your ears with some earbuds and take a nice long walk or crank up the car speakers and go for a good long drive. Spend 9+ hours in another time and place. You know you need it. Read along with me and let's talk about 1968 and get some historical contrast to the present day.
And, wow, the writing is so different from what's around today. Inspiring on an artistic level. I shouldn't admit I'm reading this and inspired because if I can figure out how to infuse my writing with some of the grand style of Norman Mailer, I will, and I don't want you to laugh at me.
