After Things Fell Apart

by Ron Goulart

The time is a few decades from now, the place what used to be the United States, now disrupted by internal factionalism as well as a short-lived foreign invasion.

Out of this chaotic background Ron Goulart has produced a swift-moving, witty and constantly delightful novel, a story of a future odyssey through:

*The Nixon Institute, where aging former rock stars reminisce about the days when they still had hair;

*the wide-open sin-town of San Rafael, run by the Amateur Mafia (no Italians allowed);

*Vienna West, a detailed replica of Sigmund Freud's 19th Century city where psychiatric patients live and abreact together;

*the Monterey Mechanical Jazz Festival, featuring the music of pinball machines, jack hammers and Laundromat washers...

All this plus a dozen or two of the oddest characters you're ever likely to meet.
