An Enjoyable Journey to a place in time! I really enjoyed learning more about this era and the various stops. It's not the type of book I'd normally pickup, but I'm glad that I did.
Review published in San Diego Jewish World, April 7, 2019.
"It’s a story that includes plane, train, bus, car, and acid trips; hookahs, hook-ups, and hookers; backpacking, cheap hotels, mind-blowing drugs and scenery, and occasional reflections upon the oneness of God, and the possible meaning of life."

This story feels like I'm peeking over the shoulder of my friends from that odd time when I was a 20-year-old and equally lost. At that time, I made the safe choice - get a minimum-wage job, go to night school, rent an apartment. But some friends chose adventure - they moved around, traipsing across unfamiliar places meeting exotic people.
WANDERER took me on 'The Road Not Taken' that these friends travelled and it was just a delightful adventure. These are places I've never visited, people I've never met, food I've never eaten - I hadn't realized until I read WANDERER that I've been jealous of my friends who had chosen adventure over taking the well-trodden path of job-home-bills.
This is what a story is supposed to do. A story works when it transports you to places you've never been. WANDERER works beautifully!
I loved the book. I felt like I was traveling right along with the group. It was very descriptive. A great read!
