SAN FRANCISCO SUMMER ‘69
By Annie Carroll
Rock ‘n Roll, Sex, Drugs, Nam
This is a well written story about a nice, beautiful young woman, Julia, who with her girlfriend, Ali, move from Seattle down to San Francisco to get a more exciting taste of life, which they certainly do. Julia had worked for a newspaper in Seattle doing layouts and both girls find work shortly, although not the best of pay. In San Francisco, Julia again runs into a handsome rock ‘n roller song writer, guitarist and singer, Austen. Previously in Seattle, she and Ali had run into him and a very inebriated party of a new band in Seattle and actually quickly vacate the party, but not before Julia feels that certain electrical sexual attraction for him, which intrigues her and yet dismays her.
The story centers around Julia and Austen and their many exciting, erotic love trysts. It also includes many of the events of those times such as Nam, the drug scene, sensational music meets like Woodstock, but on the west coast in California. Is Austen serious about the future or is he just playing her? This tale, although centered around hot sex, is tastefully written and will spice up anyone’s life who reads it, especially those who lived through those times themselves.
