The Summer of Love — and the end of the world
Haight-Asbury, San Francisco, August 5, 1967. Five hippies form a band they call Rock ‘n’ Roll Universe. All they want to do is get high, make love, make music — and get on the cover of the Rolling Stone. But when they encounter a Very Strange Fellow in the Golden Gate Park, very strange things happen, and mind-boggling forces propel the group into a cosmic battle for the fate of the universe.
Rock 'n' Roll Universe is in part a homage to and a pastiche of The Butterfly Kid, by Chester Anderson, 1975. It is also in part autobiographical. Rand lived some of the events fictionalized in the book. "But I ain't saying which," he says.
