Bob Basso is the poignant and rivetingly funny voice of the sixty-plus generation yearning to recapture the simplicity and wholesome values of a fading past. His tenth book, a compilation of short stories, Searching For Hula Love Under A Blue Papaya Moon, is pure soul food.-William LeClaire, Editor, New Books Weekly (Editor's Choice Award)If you're over fifty, or hope one day to reach it, then you'll recognize the common struggle to rise above modern absurdity and find refuge in your own history. Some tales are autobiographical, verbatim true, others more or less true. Deciphering which is which is part of the fun.An aging historian loses self-importance encountering France's greatest living myth ("The Legend of Mr. Beaumarchaise"); the frustration of sex after sixty combines with disgust of all things politically correct ("White Man's Rage"); an ironic farewell to heroes ("Forty-Two Minutes With The Boys of Pearl"); an eccentric Nobel Prize poetess burns her books and looks to her garden for salvation ("Yard Work"); and magic, myth and an epic journey backward to recapture meaning at the end of life ("Searching For Hula Love Under A Blue Papaya Moon").
