In the mid-1960's, a teenage, hippie crash-pad scene developed in New York's East Village. Many of the arrivals were escaping repressive or abusive home environments. During this time, I was forced to run away twice before my father would consent for me to grow long hair. Today they call it "The Generation Gap," but it was really a Generation War. However, life in the East Village got increasingly bizarre as hard drug use increased, revealing a dark underbelly to the emerging hippie subculture.

An original short story about some disheveled characters and their tatty lives, which manages to keep them sympathetic to the reader despite their actions.

I like how Bugsy says "Cat" and "pad".
Great story for a young guy!
