Book Description

July 16, 2007 1425999085 978-1425999087
1970's college graduate Zinnia Frisch takes off on a free-spirited adventure through Europe and lands at the magical Spanish island of Ibiza. There, she discovers the exotic sexy cast of international characters who have made this place their home. With $500 and a backpack of belongings, she moves in with the in-crowd. So begins Zinnia's eventful journey as she cuts loose for unknown, forbidden places across four continents - and meets her own Prince Charming, Berend van Bos of the Netherlands. Berend, a millionaire entrepreneur, brings Zinnia into his jet-set life and into the midst of a huge hashish deal replete with Moroccan farmers, clandestine investors, dangerous cover-ups, and Interpol. Zinnia is a baby boomer who chose an alternative lifestyle, one that takes us on an almost unbelievable series of misadventures and surprises that couldn't happen in today's world. It's candid and refreshing, a splendid sun-drenched read with just the right touch of noir underpinning! You will find yourself in Zinnia and her adventures in those carefree early baby boomer days. Review by: Todd Mercer for ForeWord Magazine FOUR STARS 'Where have you been darling? ''Well Ma' I replied, 'I've been in prison in Morocco' She looked at me. 'You must be hungry' "Zinnia Frisch, an expatriate American, and her secretive Dutch husband Beri are preparing a huge transatlantic shipment of hashish from their beach resort in Tangier. They anxiously scan the waves for the running lights of a craft aptly named Wanderlust, half-expecting police to jump from the shadows. Such elongated moments of combined dread and anticipation make exciting lives and dramatic, self-searching fiction. The story backs up five years to 1970 to show how far the daughter of a cryptographer has come from her New York roots. Though she protests against the Vietnam War in college, and speaks vaguely against consumerism, specific ideologies aren't a lasting priority.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Bloomer Blues December 29, 2008
By JOY
Format:Paperback
Knowing Barbara as the author of this book, I was thrilled to read Baby Boomer Blues. I was glad to see that she was able to write about her experiences with a very interesting flair, that made me want to read the book from cover to cover, in one sitting. Congratulations and Best Wishes Barbara. JOV

I had high hopes for this book as I lived in Ibiza during the time this book takes place. Unfortunately it is not very well written and as another friend remarked, the author seems to have not had a sense of humor about all of the adventures and there's no irony appreciated by the author. Too bad. Good try though.
