Something's Happening Here: A Memoir of the 60s by Dennis Hicks

“As Gen Xers, we grew up with the consistency of being bombarded by things of yesteryears directly influencing our culture with a mixed feeling of admiration (civil rights, music, anti-war ) and disdain (the 70s, 80s greed, and more war) for "baby boomers." Gen Xers are the disrespected middle child caught between the world made by the baby boomers and the world inherently for millennials ( not a diss on Gen Y or Gen Z ). For a Gen Xer like me, I am still fascinated with 60s culture and movements, furthering my awe by reading "Something's Happening Here: A Memoir of the 60s" by Dennis Hicks, perhaps the most personal glimpse of innocence lost and heartfully written books about "baby boomers."
