Escaping Innocence: A Story of Awakening - This is a book for anyone who's old enough to remember the Age of Aquarius, drive-in movies, the Ed Sullivan Show, Bonanza, and only three TV networks. I'm talking Baby Boomers. You are the ones who will really appreciate - or should I say "dig" - this book. I hope you will enjoy the journey (read the free sample). Peace and love, man!David Justin is an Italian-Catholic, height-challenged youth, desperately trying to escape the bonds of sexual repression and adolescent innocence that hold him captive - in the Sixties. 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.(Note: While this is not a book for kids or teenagers, some older teens might just enjoy it)
