Dan Wakefield's Novels/Memoir Are Now Ebooks!

My friend Dan Wakefield is delighted to announce that his most popular novels (and one memoir) are now available in ebook format, thanks to Open Road Media. While I love all of Dan’s work, I have a special place in my heart for the memoir, New York in the Fifties, which I keep on my “Favorite Books Bookshelf.” It’s a wonderful and wonderfully personal history of those post-war, pre-hippie days in New York City when you might say, “I’m going over to Jimmy’s,” and mean James Baldwin’s apartment—at least if you were fortunate enough to be Dan Wakefield!

Here is the list of Dan’s titles, and a link for more information is below:

Under The Apple Tree: A young  boy ‘keeps watch’ over the girlfriend his big brother leaves behind when he goes off to fight in WWII.

Going All The Way
: “. . . wonderful, sad, funny, a scathing portrait of middle America through the eyes of a new fictional character” – Gay Talese

Starting Over
:  This story of divorce  is “a modern Pilgrim’s Progress . . .with all our contemporary hangups, frustrations and temptations. . .” - Chicago Tribune.

Home Free:
My novel of the ‘Sixties – read it while listening to Janis Joplin as the hippies and hangers-on search for a new meaning of “home”

Selling Out
:    “”. . .killing-funny, killing-sad, fires everywhere.  War is hell, maybe, but so is L.A.” – Tim O’Brien

New York in the Fifties (Memoir)
:  “A precise and moving recreation of a time and a place when the world seemed small and we knew everyone in it.” – Joan Didion
