Synopsis : Boonville is the story of John Gibson, the reluctant heir of an alcoholic grandmother, and Sarah McKay, a commune-reared "hippie by association." They are two young people actively searching for self and community in a small town of misfits, rednecks, and counterculture burn-outs. It's the darkly comic tale of how they try to reassemble the facts of heredity, sexuality, personal expression, love, death, the possibility of an existence without God, and what happens when they choose to make art from their lives.
Note de l'auteur: This is a work of fiction; any character's resemblance to persons living or dead is strictly coincidental. Although the town of Boonville is real and I did live there and graduate from high school and drink beer and play sports and read Dos Passos and write for the local paper and my first girlfriend (although I never really called her my girlfriend) tried to kill me there by driving into oncoming traffic at the intersection of Highway 128 and Mountain View Road and my heroes have always been cowboys and I do truly love the Anderson Valley, there's no way to accurately portray this place. Nobody would believe the real truth. It's too violent and weird. And this is not some thinly veiled autobiography. I repeat, this is a work of fiction. I tried my best to get at some "higher truth." I think we all know the inherent problems in that undertaking. So, any of the local residents who can read, and do read this novel, and take offense at the descriptions or content,! instead of sucker-punching me while I'm in town trying to buy you a drink and we'll call it even. As for the hippies in the county who may be upset at the depiction of hippies, I say, "Tough shit, hippie." Anyone willing to identify themselves as a hippie here in the 21st century has their head up their ass and gets what they deserve.
