Summary ↠ Season of the Witch ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub O life the revolution of the permissive society the world of youth free love drugs and dang. I honestly have a hard time explaining why I enjoyed this novel There should have been so much about it that made me go What am I reading Is this a book about politics marijuana incest government teenagers utopia or the insanity of one girl There was so much this book did an excellent job of explaining without feeling like you needed to choke on detailsWitch the name the main character takes on when she runs away from home tells the whole novel from her point of view as she writers it in her diary She and her best friend John escape to New York after he s received his draft letter in September of 1969 In New York they meet people like them against the war but pro smoking marijuana and talk The whole novel is a lot of discussions between people and their thoughts and what they believe a perfect society would be Meanwhile Witch finds her father and tries to get the communist to join her side of thinking The ending is disappointing there is no resolution to anything really but at the same time it completely works for the novel The novel was never about a hard plot that had a clear beginning middle and an end The novel was about Witch and how her interactions with others affected her thoughts and process Written in 1971 the novel is great insight into what some were thinking during the war though it is still a fictitious and to be taken with a grain of saltReasons to Read Excellent storytelling from a high 17 year old character that keeps in character rather than giving voice to Herlihy You enjoy a little bit of history through the eyes of cloud smoke You enjoy older novelsReasons Not To Read Incest becomes a major plot point The characters aren t all that sympathetic No Resolution in the end

Summary ↠ Season of the Witch ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Nd she finds it In this major new bestseller the author of Midnight Cowboy brings vividly t. CuriousI had no expectations when I started this book having not heard of it or the author before After a few pages I was a little worried it would turn into some old guys condescending view of the hippies written at the very moment when hippies were starting to become big cultural stars The book is written as a series of journal entries composed by Gloria who renames herself Witch in the course of the story and the language is so earnest Gloria and her friend the awkward gay teen boy John who renames himself Roy are at first so naive so earnest so uick to affirm each other that it seems like a set up as though the author is with us winking at their sillinessBut Herlihy takes a difficult path He explores the characters unfolding their layers sending them out into a world that is both dangerous and accepting Witch and Roy run away from their suburban Detroit homes and end up in New York where after some hard encounters they find a soft place to land a communal home supported by a rich psychoanalyst who is also turned on in one of the book s recurrent phrases meaning hip to the New Age ideas espoused by the hippies He is married but the couple is also sleeping with another of the women in the house They all smoke pot and drop acid but nothing harder They worry about how to make rules in their future utopia a place that should be free from rules and also are anxious about how to live now What to do when one of their housemates turns out to be a speed freak and dealer Throw him out Love him anywayThat worry is part of the reason that the book works the characters are not stock hippies but engaged thinking feeling changing people The other reason the biggest reason is that Witch s voice rings so true She can be ironic ruthlessly dissecting her own motivations as well as those of others around her always on the hunt for hypocrisy but then having identified it looking for ways past itShe s also on a dangerous uest She s looking for the father who abandoned her and to her mind represents her true lineage her mother married wealthy and has given herself to the plastic culture of twentieth century America Her father is a communist professor in New York He can be a bit of a stereotype in the story an old guard communist confused by the new peace and love generation but he does try and he provides some comic relief Once she finds him Witch s uest becomes even dangerous she plans to sleep with himThe future she imagines on an acid trip will be bright and perfect But it isn t Rather than sleep with her father she confesses their blood relations which understandably sends him for a loop She returns to her mother and the conclusion of their relationship is simple stark and has none of the book s earlier sentimentality they decide to give up on one anotherThe book itself is probably a little too long but Witch s voice is so assured that it s not much of an issue She s a developing writer and the book shows the growing confidence and skill in her craft At the same time like so many other 20th century novels Season of the Witch becomes a book about the act of writing and whether it amounts to anything especially compared to the actual living of life and experiencing of its highs both chemically induced and otherwise
