I have just rewritten these two novels. They are both based in the sixties and reflect the life and attitude that pervaded the time. I guess I’m still living it! Fancy some nostalgia? Want to learn more about the reality of living in the sixties?
301 Bedsit Land
It is the sixties, bedsit land, 301 Green Lanes, and the story of a moment in time, a building and a colourful assortment of characters, some good, some bad.
It is also Danny’s story: how he stumbled upon a place to live and a series of unlikely friendships that saved his life.
This is the story of a house that became a home.
It is the story of an assortment of desperate people who were all lost and some became found.
It is a real story of how people who are worthless and have no respect for themselves yet came together to form a community.
It is a story that tells us that there is a reason for everything; that chance works in strange ways and that often salvation appears out of the strangest circumstance.
This is the story of Danny Charles.
It’s also a love story.
This is the ultimate sixties book – a novel from the British Underground with all its sex, drugs, dreams and music; those times of crazy people high on life and mad for experience – from a time when anything was possible.
Capturing that idealistic naïve impossibility permeated with vitality and careering love and dreams, the wild rush for adventure without a thought for the future because the dream was going to last forever.
– Seemingly, as Love said: Forever Changes!
It spans continents as it trips its way through time, space and minds in a mad rush to discover life and experience everything or die trying.
