Take a long road trip with native Vermonter "Jed" Donavan starting out in 1971 after he flunks his army physical for Vietnam, drops out of college, and searches for answers in post '60s America.
After crossing the country several times while transporting large amounts of marijuana, he tries to settle down in the Colorado Rockies but falls prey to a group of rebellious New Yorkers led by loudmouth Craig McDonald, a heavy drinking, ex-junkie from Long Island. Partying nonstop, they are all soon evicted from the small mountain town where they were residing. The story takes a serious turn when the young, white, hippie punks move into the Five Points black ghetto in Denver, also known as Little Harlem. As one might expect, there are some dangerous consequences for these foolhardy outsiders as they struggle for survival in this off the wall mix of culture, rap, booze, drugs, and gambling. To complicate matters, along comes Old Jones, a grizzled bootlegger who always carries a gun and knows all the pimps, whores, and drug dealers in the district.
Trouble abounds in this astonishing memoir. Mona Lisa Was No Punk is ultimately a dynamic account of the progression of addictions and the subsequent challenge for subsistence. Expect the unexpected as this journey twists to an improbable conclusion.
