9781478700715: Love Me Two Times: A Journey Back to the Late 1960s

"Perhaps one of the most faithful depictions of the sixties ever written." 

"A touching love story with unforgettable characters.  I felt as though I lost friends when the final page turned and the story ended."

"In Love Me Two Times, Philip Michaels vividly recreates the sights, sounds, epic events, and evolving counterculture that defined the turbulent, politically pivotal late sixties."

In 1968, Patrick Golden, a working-class University of Californian at Berkeley sophomore with Jewish and Irish-Catholic roots, manages to join Charles Comstock, his upper-class freshman-year roommate, at Harvard University for the summer. There, surrounded by Charles's peers--old-moneyed aristocrats and Mayflower descendants--Patrick begins an improbable romance with Morgan Thackeray, a stunningly beautiful and free-spirited coed from one of Boston's oldest, wealthiest, and most powerful families.  Their romance blossoms, despite her bigoted father's virulent objections and menacing threats, until it is ripped apart by a dark secret Morgan is compelled to hide.

Forty-one years later, Patrick, now wealthy and divorced, reconnects with Morgan in Boston at Charles Comstock's funeral, and his life is turned upside down when he learns her shocking secret.

From the Author:

Love Me Two Times is actually an enhanced second edition of my first novel, No Fortunate Son. The enhancements in no way change the plot, but they do tell the story with richer detail. The title and cover were changed as they both better describe the themes of the story and the chaos and unique cultural texture of the late 1960s.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1968, Patrick Golden, a Berkeley sophomore with Jewish and Irish-Catholic roots, is the face of entire generation of upwardly mobile, postwar, working-class progeny flocking to America's colleges and universities.  Despite his family's modest finances, he manages to convince his father, a crusty pipe-fitter who represents the old-school beliefs and biases of the past generation, to allow him to join Charles Comstock, his affluent and socially well-connected former college roommate, at Harvard University for the summer. There, surrounded by old-moneyed aristocrats and Mayflower descendants, Patrick falls in love with Morgan Thackeray, a stunningly beautiful and free-spirited coed from one of Boston's oldest, wealthiest, and most powerful families. Their romance blossoms, despite her bigoted father's virulent objections and menacing threats, until it is ripped apart by a dark secret Morgan is compelled to hide.

Forty-one years later, Patrick, now a wealthy, divorced, retired lawyer, reconnects with Morgan in Boston at Charles Comstock's funeral, and his life is dramatically altered when he learns the shocking secret that she has been keeping.

Book Description Outskirts Press, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In Love Me Two Times, Philip Michaels faithfully recreates the sights, sounds, epic events, and evolving counterculture that defined the turbulent, politically pivotal late 1960s, through the prism of two young people trying to find love amidst the existing bigotry and chaos. In 1968, Patrick Golden, a Berkeley sophomore with Jewish and Irish-Catholic roots, is the face of entire generation of upwardly mobile, postwar, working-class progeny flocking to America s colleges and universities. Despite his family s modest finances, he manages to convince his father, a crusty pipe-fitter who represents the old-school beliefs and biases of the past generation, to allow him to join Charles Comstock, his affluent and socially well-connected former college roommate, at Harvard University for the summer.

Their romance blossoms, despite her bigoted father s virulent objections and menacing threats, until it is ripped apart by a dark secret Morgan is compelled to hide. Forty-one years later, Patrick, now a wealthy, divorced, retired lawyer, reconnects with Morgan in Boston at Charles Comstock s funeral, and his life is dramatically altered when he learns the shocking secret that she has been keeping.
