The Other Side Of Haight
Author: James Fadiman
Publication date: 2000
A novel set in the Haight-Ashbury during the 'summer of love'.
A motley crew of dreamers join together in a psychedelic world of drugs, sex, and idealism. As housemates Shadow Dancer and Sweeps innocently come of age and explore all that San Francisco has to offer, a government experiment involving LSD spins out of control. The two stories collide with tragic results, impacting each character in profound ways. Fadiman's intimate, enthralling narrative is rich with historical detail and successfully conjures up a tumultuous time in America's past.
