The Season Of The Witch

(1971)
A novel by

 
 
"One of the best and most convincing novels written so far about the lifestyle of the Woodstock generation." (Publishers Weekly)

It's the fall of 1969, and Gloria Random's best friend John has been called up for the draft. To escape it, they decide to run away from their Midwest town and their mundane lives. Renaming themselves Witch and Roy, they head to New York City in search of Witch's biological father. Landing in the East Village, they are pulled into a community of drug use, mystical rituals, and sexual experimentation as they try to hide deeper and deeper from the realities they left behind.

James Leo Herlihy's third novel captures the mood and grooves of late-60s New York at the height of the anti-war movement and the counterculture revolution. With his trademark wit and insight, Herlihy brings together a colorful cast of characters ripped right from the heart of one of the most turbulent eras in American history.
