Synopsis

The Sixties is a powerful literary anthology written by individuals who witnessed and participated in that revolutionary decade. Their stories, recollected in relative tranquility, illuminate this remarkable time, lifting the curtain of amnesia and media distortion that has been triggered by the decade's inadmissible truths.

The essays, fiction, and poetry in The Sixties recapture the complexity of events, providing personal, reflective, and diverse testimony on a decade driven by an obsessive will to change. John Lewis's experiences with SNCC or Rosellen Brown's at Tougaloo College are moral light years removed from P.J. O'Rourke's hilarious encounter with the Balto Cong in Baltimore. Maxine Hong Kingston's depiction of head-adventurers in the Bay Area forms an unlikely parallel with Tom Hayden's experiences in the streets of Chicago in 1968.

The Sixties explodes any simplification about the decade and rekindles in us a sense of wonder about our recent past.
