The Mental Traveler

This picaresque novel of artistic initiation, first completed in 1993, was published in 2009 by Greenhouse Review Press and recounts the adventures of one Stephen K. as he leaves consensual reality in search of the Revolution he perceives to be in progress signaled by the arrival of the Rolling Stones at Altamont in December 1969.  The book is both an intimate account of psychosis and a vivid evocation of a tumultuous historical moment.
