What people are saying about "That Summer of '74"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Sheer Perfection! - This is truly one of the best books I've ever read. Being a California boy myself and having lived during this period, I felt at times I was transported back to my days of youth ... After 499 pages, I found myself wanting the story to continue. If you have a chance to read this book, gay, straight, whatever.... take the time and do so." Chandler Foster via Amazon.com

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Amazing - I’m going to make this short. This was an amazing book. There’s so much going on, so much learning by the characters, particularly Alex, about life and that things are not always as they seem. Be prepared to laugh out loud, cry, get angry, laugh some more, and cry, cry, cry ... The writing was perfect, the characters were well developed, especially Alex’s. Just read it ..."

"Evokes the 1970s and falling truly in love - Great read. A real page turner. I loved the genuine love story between the two young men. Adored the descriptions of their beach house, I want to live there!! The clothes, the film industry of the period. Very real ..." S.L. Gardner via Amazon.co.uk

"Los Angeles in the 1970s - 1974 was an EXCITING time in Los Angeles, California, especially for a young person, where I lived then AND now. Adding the movie-entertainment-artistic business and characters REALLY made this story “my thing.”  I recommend this book now and also as a summer read. My advice?: Don’t wait until summer." H. Tanchuck via Amazon.com
