I have always wondered if the era I have fantasized about was all as rosy as it looked through so many hippie glasses.
But after reading the brilliant and colorful "Beneath the Diamond Sky", I learned that it wasn't.Barney Hoskyns paints very vivid pictures of the myths we've all come to know and love about the trippy Love Generation (including how it all came to be), but he also balances that by revealing what led to its decline, including how the people at its center and all the hangers-on drifted away, burned out, or disappeared forever.
Kind of sad to have a book reinforce the reality that many of our favorite fantasies are just that: fantasies.But before he brings you to that realization, Hoskyns grabs you by the hand and essentially says, "Come, let's take a trip on a trippy magic carpet ride."
