Product Description

The sixties, in all its wildness, joys, psychedelics and vagabonding, with a haunting romance and the Vietnam War as a backdrop, author Gary Paul Corcoran calls The Trip Into Milky Way, the other side of Vietnam and what happens to a young man when he refuses to die for his country. Based on his own, real life experiences, the minute Clay Matthews walks out of an induction center in LA, he becomes not only a man without a country, but ostracized from family and friends. Clay’s only hope is to find a place in the sun, an odyssey that leads him from a sojourn in the South Pacific to smuggling drugs across the Mexican border to a sojourn along the Mexican Riviera and ultimately incarceration in a Mexican prison, a crucible through which Clay must pass into manhood. Abandoned by the love of his life, Caroline, his dreams shattered, Clay begins to see that his desperate efforts to avoid the war have led only to an unfettered selfishness on his part. Still, his only thought is to escape from the Mexican prison and regain his freedom. Yet when he does so, Clay finds himself unable to forget Kip, the friend he has left behind. Clay’s quest to rescue Kip leads to a riveting conclusion, in which Caroline and a host of colorful sixties’ characters play their part.
