1970's college graduate Zinnia Frisch takes off on a free-spirited adventure through Europe and lands at the magical Spanish island of Ibiza. There, she discovers the exotic sexy cast of international characters who have made this place their home. With $500 and a backpack of belongings, she moves in with the in-crowd. So begins Zinnia's eventful journey as she cuts loose for unknown, forbidden places across four continents - and meets her own Prince Charming, Berend van Bos of the Netherlands. Berend, a millionaire entrepreneur, brings Zinnia into his jet-set life and into the midst of a huge hashish deal replete with Moroccan farmers, clandestine investors, dangerous cover-ups, and Interpol. Zinnia is a baby boomer who chose an alternative lifestyle, one that takes us on an almost unbelievable series of misadventures and surprises that couldn't happen in today's world. It's candid and refreshing, a splendid sun-drenched read with just the right touch of noir underpinning! You will find yourself in Zinnia and her adventures in those carefree early baby boomer days. Review by: Todd Mercer for ForeWord Magazine FOUR STARS 'Where have you been darling? ''Well Ma' I replied, 'I've been in prison in Morocco' She looked at me. 'You must be hungry' "Zinnia Frisch, an expatriate American, and her secretive Dutch husband Beri are preparing a huge transatlantic shipment of hashish from their beach resort in Tangier. They anxiously scan the waves for the running lights of a craft aptly named Wanderlust, half-expecting police to jump from the shadows. Such elongated moments of combined dread and anticipation make exciting lives and dramatic, self-searching fiction. The story backs up five years to 1970 to show how far the daughter of a cryptographer has come from her New York roots. Though she protests against the Vietnam War in college, and speaks vaguely against consumerism, specific ideologies aren't a lasting priority.

Based on scores of interviews with the artist's relatives, friends, lovers, producers, accompanists, managers, and fans, this brilliant biography reveals a man of many layers and contradictions. Following the journey of a musician who left his family's poor cotton farm at age eight carrying only a guitar, the book chronicles his life on the open road playing blues music and doing odd jobs. It debunks the myths surrounding his meetings with Blind Lemon Jefferson and Texas Alexander, his time on a chain gang, his relationships with women, and his lifelong appetite for gambling and drinking. This volume also discusses his hard-to-read personality; whether playing for black audiences in Houston's Third Ward, for white crowds at the Matrix in San Francisco, or in the concert halls of Europe, Sam Hopkins was a musician who poured out his feelings in his songs and knew how to endear himself to his audience--yet it was hard to tell if he was truly sincere, and he appeared to trust no one. Finally, this book moves beyond exploring his personal life and details his entire musical career, from his first recording session in 1946--when he was dubbed Lightnin'--to his appearance on the national charts and his rediscovery by Mack McCormick and Sam Charters in 1959, when his popularity had begun to wane and a second career emerged, playing to white audiences rather than black ones. Overall, this narrative tells the story of an important blues musician who became immensely successful by singing with a searing emotive power about his country roots and the injustices that informed the civil rights era.
