Summary "Nearly two decades after a terrible argument with his son Gabriel, Henry ... learns that his estranged son has been found wandering the streets in a daze. Gabriel is diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury that leaves him thinking he's still in 1968 and in the midst of Vietnam, acid tests and psychedelic music. Through a music therapist ... Gabriel is able to express himself through the artists that defined a generation: the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills & Nash and, particularly, the Greatful Dead. While Henry can't stand rock 'n' roll, his determnation to forge a connection with his son means he must forge his own pilgrimage through the music of the 1960s--resulting in both a strong bond with his son and new lessons about himself"--Container.
