Capturing the Spirit of the '60s

The book In the House of My Fear by Joel Agee has been giving commentator Andrei Codrescu flashbacks from the 1960s: the feeling of being hit on the head with a nightstick at a demonstration, or of an acid trip. It's the book Codrescu has been waiting for, one that vividly captures the period's sensibility.
