In 1970, a California commune pulls up stakes and moves to the harsh interior of Alaska. The members establish Drop City, a back-to-the-land town, on a foundation of peace and free love. But their idealism cannot prevent tension from rippling through the group. The results are anything but predictable in this honest, surprising evocation of a time period and its enduring beliefs. The ninth novel from PEN/Faulkner Award winner T. C. Boyle is a tour de force infused with the lyricism and take-no-prisoners storytelling for which he is justly famous.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“While the Day-Glo of the hippie era has long since faded, this novel brings it all back home—and helps us see how much in the American grain it all really was.” Publishers Weekly
“A vastly entertaining tale that balances the exuberance and the excesses, the promise and the preposterousness of the counterculture perhaps better than any other work of American fiction.” Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Not only an entertaining romp through the madness of the countercultural ’70s but a stirring parable about the American dream as well.” New York Times
