Any Day Now
This tour de force, road movie of a novel is a poignant excursion into the last days of the Beats and the radicalized culture of the 1960s, from Kentucky to New York City and beyond. Written in a voice that is warmhearted and hauntingly original, "Any Day Now" is the story of Clay, a small-town boy... read more whose future is all mapped out. It travels as far as an isolated New Mexico commune under threat from a national revolution, with Clay battling to find his place in the new America -- and hoping desperately to forget what happened back East with the girl he loved. <br> Bisson, whose prose brings to life this wild tale in the vein of Philip Roth's "The Plot Against America, " has written a transcendent commentary on America's civil liberties and the perils of growing up, then and now.
