Have you ever wished for the summer to end?
This was the summer that broke America’s back, a time of passion, promise and destruction: the summer of 1968.
My Back Pages is the story of Del Turner and his family as they live through this hot summer of change.
Against the backdrop of the assassination of Robert Kennedy, student riots and deadly fighting in Vietnam, Del’s world is blown apart. As he discovers rock music, LSD and sex, his innocence vanishes.
Simultaneously, his life is shattered as he deals with racism against his Afro-American girlfriend while his mother abandons the family. After ’68, nothing will ever be the same again.
My Back Pages is a dramatic tale of youth, rebellion, and transformation. Enjoy this captivating tale!
