Nostalgia ain't what it used to to be, or so they say. Young Americans in the 1960s experimented with new lifestyles and drugs, and challenged ideas about love, sex, war, and peace. And Patrick Golden was in the middle of it all at bohemian, liberal Berkeley in 1968. But in retirement, Patrick Golden found himself resigned to an existence that only appeared enviable. In Love Me Two Times: A Journey Back to the Late 1960s, Philip Michaels showcases a man's wistful and passionate life. Jim Morrison's sultry lyric pleads "Love me two times, baby -- Love me twice today...." which sets the tone for this intriguing fiction.
Pat, a former lawyer, lives on Belvedere island with his temperamental daughter Susan. He enjoys life there with a Grey Goose martini and an occasional cigar. But he lost the love of his life in the '60s and he is confused and haunted by her memory. He stays at his luxurious home, looking out over the Golden Gate Bridge. After 41 years apart, an unexpected death will bring him face to face with beautiful Morgan.
Philip Michaels takes us on a virtual trip to experience the '60s through the character of Patrick. His disapproving father and Pat's wide range of friends also add context to this character-driven story. The narrative and frequent dialogue flows effortlessly. The rock 'n roll music and freedom of this revolutionary time is like a heady life soundtrack. Love Me Two Times by Philip Michaels is a groovy, heartbreaking, and passionate novel.
