Home free : a novel by Dan Wakefield( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A slacker hero embarks on a rollicking cross-country journey of love-ins and acid trips in this rich portrait of the 1960s When his foxy professor/girlfriend kicks him out of her apartment, perennial college student Gene Barrett sets off on a road trip in search of a place he can call home. He ventures from Boston to Maine to Iowa City, ultimately making his way to the?last resort? of California's Venice Beach. Experimenting with LSD, hash, and heroin, and encountering rock stars, draft dodgers, and natural food store proprietors living off the land, Gene zigzags through a cross-section of 1960s American counterculture. More than a freewheeling jaunt through the sixties, though, Home Free sheds light on the universal desire for love and belonging. Amidst the haze of drugs and free-loving hippies, Gene is forced to look inward and face his deeply human flaws--because eventually, his life will depend on it. With national bestselling author Dan Wakefield's trademark fusion of gritty, journalistic prose and richly evocative language, Gene's story is an engaging, somber meditation on self-awareness, responsibility, and growing up

The hijacking of Jesus : how the religious right distorts Christianity and promotes violence and hate by Dan Wakefield( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christianity in America has become almost synonymous with right-wing fanaticism, conservative politics, and - courtesy of Mel Gibson - a brutally sadistic version of the religious experience. Millions of devout Christians, like Dan Wakefield, are appalled by this distortion of their faith, which only three decades ago stood for peace, equality, healing, and compassion for society's outcasts - the issues that made up the ministry of Jesus." "How did it come to pass that the Jesus who preached the Sermon on the Mount has in effect been hijacked by right-wingers and the Republican Party? Dan Wakefield travels across America in search of answers, meeting evangelical Christians, visiting the new mega-churches, finding "a cultish kind of Christianity as dangerous as it is distorted," showing how right wingers supported by wealthy foundations are using "wedge issues"--Homosexuality and abortion - to destroy the fabric of traditional mainline Protestantism."--Jacket

Wakefield explodes the many myths often associated with the mysterious creative process: that creativity is only for the artistic elite, that women's work is less creative than men's, and that to be creative means one must be tormented, alienated, neurotic, irresponsible, and a failure at relationships. The truth is that many of us are blocked by low self-esteem, unrealistic expectations, stultifying routine, or the double demons of money and artistic standing - we compartmentalize our lives into the "creative" and the "commonplace."
