Very Good., Pan Books, Paperback. New. This work offers intimate and evocative insights into what it was like to be a young girl growing up in the late 1960s and early 1970s alternative hippy communities. The foreword is by Moon Zappa, daughter of musician Frank Zappa., Andre Deutsch Ltd, 1992-12-01. Hardcover. Good. 0233986405 Ex-Library. Near Fine dust jacket. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Elkon's sly, riotous romp is so busy being a farce, a political thriller, a coming-of-age novel and a satire of the '60s counterculture that it runs out of steam about halfway through. Tom Bloch, a South African hippie, student activist and protagonist of Elkon's first novel, Umfaan's Heroes , arrives in London penniless with his new bride, Mona, who is mentally disturbed after taking an overdose of LSD. When Tom's grandmother Hazel drops dead upon learning that she has inherited millions from a long-ago lover, a Hungarian count afflicted with "Rampant Priapism," Tom stands to inherit her fortune if he proves himself fit and responsible in the nine months before his 21st birthday in 1970. Although he gets a respectable job to revamp his image, things go awry: Mona, who may be the person murdering his friends, abandons him; Julia, Tom's lesbian roommate and sometime lover, apparently dies in a suicide pact; and Tom is recruited by South Africa's Secret Service to illegally sell plutonium to Rhodesia, a scheme he intends to expose. Allergic to hypocrisy and pretense, Elkon takes deadly satiric aim at hippiedom, academia, apartheid, obtuse parents and preening adolescents through most of this in a zany lark of a novel.

See our member, Tight, unmarked copy.Urban and rural collide in this wry, inspiring memoir of a woman who turned a vacant lot in downtown Oakland into a thriving farmNovella Carpenter loves cities-the culture, the crowds, the energy. At the same time, she can't shake the fact that she is the daughter of two back-to-the-land hippies who taught her to love nature and eat vegetables. Ambivalent about repeating her parents' disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways: a homegrown vegetable plot as well as museums, bars, concerts, and a twenty-four-hour convenience mart mere minutes away. Especially when she moved to a ramshackle house in inner city Oakland and discovered a weed-choked, garbage-strewn abandoned lot next door. She closed her eyes and pictured heirloom tomatoes, a beehive, and a chicken coop. What started out as a few egg-laying chickens led to turkeys, geese, and ducks. Soon, some rabbits joined the fun, then two three-hundred-pound pigs. And no, these charming and eccentric animals weren't pets; she was a farmer, not a zookeeper. Novella was raising these animals for dinner. Novella Carpenter's corner of downtown Oakland is populated by unforgettable characters. Lana (anal spelled backward, she reminds us) runs a speakeasy across the street and refuses to hurt even a fly, let alone condone raising turkeys for Thanksgiving. Bobby, the homeless man who collects cars and car parts just outside the farm, is an invaluable neighborhood concierge. The turkeys, Harold and Maude, tend to escape on a daily basis to cavort with the prostitutes hanging around just off the highway nearby. Every day on this strange and beautiful farm, urban meets rural in the most surprising ways. For anyone who has ever grown herbs on their windowsill, tomatoes on their fire escape, or obsessed over the offerings at the local farmers' market, Carpenter's story will capture your heart. And if you've ever considered leaving it all behind to become a farmer outside the city limits, or looked at the abandoned lot next door with a gleam in your eye, consider this both a cautionary tale and a full-throated call to action. Farm City is an unforgettably charming memoir, full of hilarious moments, fascinating farmers' tips, and a great deal of heart. It is also a moving meditation on urban life versus the natural world and what we have given up to live the way we do.276 p., Penguin Press HC, The, 2009
