This book looks at that question with the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s when the worlds beliefs, institutions and morality were being over-turned. One of the biggest stars of the British rock revolution meets an American dancer/singer/actress who is the dream of every red-blooded American boy. Just what everyone dreams of, right? Throw in the sexual revolution, the Vietnam war, the peace movement, the drug culture and growing up under the threat of Hollywood blacklisting from the McCarthy House Un-American Activities Committee. What could possibly go wrong? This is an engrossing story of a young couple striving to have a normal life in an abnormal world. Irresistible.
