Maps Of The Imagination is phantasmagorical journey through the "psychedelic sixties" by a young writer who had an uncanny ability to create images with words. Influenced heavily by the Beat writers of the preceding generation, these writings serve as a titillating "link" between the Beats and their phylogeny of angel-headed hipsters who came of age in the "sixties." Haiku-like in vividness and subject matter, this work presents little vignettes of how life appeared to many of this generation, at a time when war raged abroad, and social convention was being turned on its head, at home. It is destined to serve as an important period piece for this very special time, set, and setting. So get ready to wander through the mindscapes of an America we once knew; the itinerary provided is sufficient to get you there and back in One Peace.
