“The ‘Sixties’ is mostly myth and symbol now, a commodity sold in the marketplace as both cautionary tale and unattainable romance, but Ron Jacobs isn’t buying it. In Daydream Sunset, part memoir, part lament, part impressionistic social history, he dives headfirst into the wreckage in order to paint an intimate portrait of a revolution that almost was—the widespread sense of possibility, the accelerating drive and energy, the certainty that everything old must be put on trial and anything new was worth a try, and the intoxicating soundtrack beating out the contradictory rhythms of individualism and collectivity, narcissism and social purpose.”
– Bill Ayers, author of Fugitive Days and Public Enemy
