Out of the Bag: A Search for Missing Pieces
by Greg McAllister
We begin in the secreted, all-boys world of a Catholic seminary in the 1950s and progress through Vietnam protests, race riots, and the sexual revolution. A young would-be priest crosses his fingers during the oath of celibacy, moves to the Haight Ashbury, gets his girlfriend pregnant, and finally wakes up naked and sore in a padded cell. It's the boomer tutorial, all about change and humor.
