About this title

Synopsis:

Somewhere a long time ago the summer ended....

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

...Somewhere a long time ago the summer ended. Old pulp magazines on white steps. Grimy pants stood out clearly even the stains. Last time together last dust of hope out there in the blue flight of adolescence on the road of the Stranger. Remember who the Stranger was, breathing the writer's self-knowledge and God-guilt? An obscene word scrawled on the farther shore long ago. A last trip home across the gleaming empty sky, fragments of lost words...

Man did not rise out of the animal state, he was shoved down to be an animal by the infamous Fifth Colonists. The first man landed in Eden in a crippled spacecraft. He lived there with the animal waiting for a pickup. But the Fifth Colonists arrived. One day when the first man was having intercourse with a shy young lemur he was slapped from behind by a fat cop. The police doctor cut out a rib. The whisky priest muttered over it and it turned into a Lesbian policewoman who screamed at the dazed Adam: 'What are you doing in front of decent people!'
