The Summer That Never Was
by Stephen Flood
Tulle notices the Ford across the old pear orchard. His dad, a nuclear scientist, is thrown in jail. Is it paranoia or are the Feds watching his house? "It isn’t going in, it's getting out," the old black woman warns him. Navigating the mayhem of Berkeley counterculture, first love, the Vietnam draft and disillusionment, he is brought to the brink before redemption comes from unlikely sources.
