1968. Everything must be torn away, ripped down like worn fabrics heavy with dust. Let the light and air pour in, the limitless light. A dozen Liberation Fronts signal the war for all our freedoms.

At this great party in history, a man and a woman catch each other’s eye.

"Angela’s embroidery springs up on my shirts – flowers over a pocket, the sun and moon on left and right shoulders – and my jeans – scorpions, marijuana leaves, rambling wildflowers winding over the denim, around the crotch.

Angela is weaving a web of silk around me. I remember the life before I met her – as if it were long ago!

Although I may wish to leave, that cannot be. There is no going back to those days, before Angela, before acid."

Simon is a 19-year-old dropout, drifting, naive, living in London, riding the exhilarating, iconoclastic mood of protest. Bright, amazing flares of liberation on America's West Coast draw him like a grail. Arriving in San Francisco he finds "a fire igniting whose flames must engulf the whole world." More than that, another liberation promises to be greater than all, a liberty beyond politics. There he falls for the older, wealthier, enigmatic Angela, who warns him, though, that she's already deeply in love with another man. Never sure what their relationship consists of, Simon and Angela travel together, via a London squat, a Mediterranean idyll and a Greek prison, to join the stoned crowd on the overland route to the East. In India, Angela finds what she is looking for: her former lover Jesse. But Jesse rejects her once again - and Simon at last understands that things are not as they seem.
