9780595488100: One Time in Paris: A Memoir of the 1960s

In the 1960s, Wade Stevenson sought both escape and an "elsewhere" he could call his own. After a brief stint at the University of California at Berkeley, he returned to New York, only to have his own father commit him to a mental institution.

That committal turned out to be prophetic. One day he heard the plaintive notes of a flute somewhere nearby. A troubled teen named Cynthia was creating those wistful melodies.

Leaving both Cynthia and the asylum behind, Wade worked on an oil tanker, which took him to Le Havre, France. There Wade began a journey of romance, love, and passion as his path fatefully crossed once again with Cynthia's.

Wade knew he and Cynthia shared a vision and a vital desire to guide their destinies. Their kindred spirits led them on extraordinary adventures. Together, they explored their boundaries with sex, love, and drugs in their quest for spiritual freedom.

In this touching and intimate memoir, Wade recounts the Paris he knew, with its sensuality and light, love and art-but also an ultimate loss. Like many before him, Wade immersed himself in love, only to realize that the woman of his heart could never belong to him.

From the Back Cover:

"She had appeared out of nowhere in my life like an apparition, a vision, a dream. I knew that I had to have her, but my desire to possess her was rooted in the physical. At the same time, however, whatever it was that powered me toward her transcended the physical in a new and surprising way."
