It follows one mans odyssey through political, cultural and social upheaval and the pervasive influences of television, film, books, sports, art, popular music, grand ideas, sexual confusion and drugs- everything that turned the life. It is the autobiography of a generation, not because it is an honest witness to the country during these years, but because it illumines how one soul, despite these influences and because of them, finds its way to fulfillment, wisdom and peace. The pivotal moment of the life occurs center stage at the defining political assassination of the century. Regression, Book Three of The Burning of Desire, 1968-1980, begins in the immediate aftermath of that assassination. Broken down and stripped of all the should bes and supposed to bes he begins his journey home.
