James C. Wilsonís memoir begins in Pula, Yugoslavia, circa 1972, where he is accused of threatening Marshal Tito, the President of Yugoslavia. It flashes back to the States and his anti-war activities at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago and elsewhere. He then travels to Paris and Strasbourg where he spends time in exile with a French companion who speaks no English and dislikes Americans, and who finally leaves him for a group of pilgrims on their way to India. Returning to the States, he finds refuge in the counterculture community of Santa Fe, New Mexico, which becomes his spiritual home.
James C. Wilson is Emeritus Professor of English and Journalism at the University of Cincinnati. He has published five books, including Embodied Rhetorics: Disability in Language and Culture and Weather Reports from the Autism Front: A Fatherís Memoir of His Autistic Son. Retired, he lives on the West Mesa, across the Rio Grande from Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the historical La Luz del Oeste community designed by architect Antoine Predock. He does not for one moment regret his counterculture activities.
