If The 60s Were The 90s: An Ode to Venice Beach (Paperback)
Imagine sleeping on the streets, then becoming the king of Venice. According to Michael Ruark, that can happen with a creative, honest, positive, and fearless attitude.
This memoir is a raw documentation of Ruark's experience in Venice, California, in the early 1990s, with all the excitement and hardships of a bohemian lifestyle amid the Los Angeles riots, the Oakwood gang warfare, and the Northridge earthquake. It is the story of a young man's rise from an abused childhood and homelessness.
