Cow in the Doorway

The Cow In The Doorway: Love and Loss in the Time of Pot and Protest Kindle Edition by Gino B. Bardi

Associate Member Published his first book, March 1, 2016:

It’s a coming of age romantic comedy (a la ‘The Graduate” and similar stories)  which takes place in 1968 and ’69 at Cornell University amid the Vietnam protests, pot smoking and sexual exploration…and the ever-present anxiety that every male student faced if he flunked out: immediate military service and (very) active duty on the firing line.  It’s a full-length work, 100,000 words, and was entirely written while I attended David Edmonds’ Tarpon Springs Fiction group, over a one year period. The Kindle version is available now, for $2.99 and the paperback will follow in a few weeks.
