The Basement, a Novel of the Sixties recounts the story of a returned Peace Corps Volunteer, would-be writer, whose stories are not selling enough to pay the rent. He takes the offer of living in a basement, rent-free. Meanwhile, the Sixties are happening all around, on the college campus with marches and protests, drop-ins to the basement include druggies, AWOLs, teenage girls staying out of their dorms overnight, free beer, and a seemingly endless party scene. At the same time, Africa keeps coming back to his mind, the girl he left behind, the students, the vast cultural divide, the animals, the adventure. When he leaves the basement, it is to enter the world outside, the world of protest and anger with a vitality that his college education hadn't prepared him for.
