I have read through HOLLYWOOD to VIENNA: A Trip and a Half a couple of times. It strikes me as very cinematic and fast-moving, honest, compelling, absolutely entertaining.. -- Chris Davies "author, Frozen Energy"
This book is a heady journey through the counterculture of the 60s and beyond. The narrator is the fortunate product of its particular manifestation in California, experiencing this unique spread of years in all its intensity at just the right age. He enjoys a childhood in Brentwood, near the beaches of Los Angeles where he went to school with the children of Hollywood celebrities, and moves, when older, to Venice Beach and Topanga Canyon. He then heads north to La Honda, Oakland and finally Berkeley, before winding up halfway around the globe in Vienna, Austria. The books narrative grew out of the cultural interface between his experiences in California and in Middle Europe's Vienna, Austria, world renowned center of psychoanalysis and classical music.
