Acclaimed British cartoonist Carol Swain's trademark visual approach to comics, typified by exquisitely composed panels that vividly capture both anomie and pathos, is perfectly suited to dramatising the life of her partner, Bruce Paley - a man who turned 18 during the Summer of Love, putting him on the front line of the 1960s youth movement. Paley's tumultuous journey takes him from being a Kerouac-loving hippie through to dropping acid at Disneyland and crashing with armed Black Panthers at the Democratic National Convention.
