From the Inside Flap
phant best seller, James Michener unfolds a powerful and poignant drama of six young runaways adrift in a world they have created out of dreams, drugs, and dedication to pleasure. With the sure touch of a master, Michener pulls us into the dark center of their private world, whether it's in Spain, Marrakech, or Mozambique, and exposes the naked nerve ends with shocking candor and infinite compassion.
"A superior, picaresque novel...and a revealing mirror held up to contemporary society."
JOHN BARKHAM REVIEWS --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Because he had a career as a researcher before turning writer, Michener's books provide some of the best historical/fiction reading one could find. Once you have read one of his books, like me, you are hooked. My bucket list includes reading every book Michener has written. The only difficulty I have with Michener's books, is that they are so enjoyable that I keep rereading them. His "Centennial" I must have reread six times, likewise with "The Source," "Texas," "Hawaii," "Caribbean," "Poland," and also with "The Novel" to name just a few. My least favorite was "Tales from the South Pacific" for which he won the Nobel Prize.
