A 21st century blend of Tom Sawyer-meets-Mad Men, TJ Retlaw is a hilarious elegy to the roaring ’60s and ’70s, a coming-of-age story from a time suddenly squashed by our resurgent Puritanism. Rich in anecdotal humor and graphic description, the odyssey begins on a family dairy farm in upstate New York, cradle of the still-innocent youth. Young and raw, TJ quickly flees these bucolic fields in search of the greener pastures of Experience. From taunting bulls to penetrating typhoons, to trysts with the goddess, to encounters with the medicine man—TJ Retlaw lived the real American dream of fast planes and faster women. Fly along on TJ’s days as a naval aviation cadet en route to earning the coveted navy wings of gold. Espy the clandestine world of a TWA commercial airline pilot when flying was still glamorous and civility was the norm. Shake a martini and enjoy the journey on this masterful tour to a vanished age. The incorrigible TJ Retlaw is the last of the good guys.
