In the Black

Kansas City, 1965 — Y.T. Erp, Jr. can’t wait to leave for college at the University of California, Berkeley to escape not only the work, but especially all the phlegm-brained idiots at his father’s aerospace company. Leaving behind a pregnant auburn-haired cheerleader, a sensuous red-headed siren plotting to usurp his familial ties, and his two best friends — one who ends up in Vietnam and the other in the Weather Underground — his “trip” on the wild side of the Generation Gap takes him from the psychedelic scene of Haight-Ashbury to the F.B.I.’s Ten Most Wanted list. Meanwhile his father is consumed by the task of managing his unmanageable phlegm-brains in the quest to help fulfill a President’s challenge to “land a man on the moon.”
