In the Black
Kansas City, 1965 — Y.T. Erp, Jr. can't wait to leave for college at the University of California, Berkeley to escape not only the work, but especially all the phlegm-brained idiots at his father's aerospace company. Leaving behind a pregnant auburn-haired cheerleader, a sensuous red-headed siren plotting to usurp his familial ties, and his two best friends — one who ends up in Vietnam and the other in the Weather Underground — his "trip" on the wild side of the Generation Gap takes him from the psychedelic scene of Haight-Ashbury to the F.B.I.'s Ten Most Wanted list. Meanwhile his father is consumed by the task of managing his unmanageable team in the quest to help fulfill a President's challenge to "land a man on the moon."

“I aim to pay forward at least some small portion of the fun I’ve had and the discoveries I’ve made from reading great books, holding fast to the notion that while victors may get to write history, novelists get to write/right reality.” ~M.T. Bass
