The newest work from the man who introduced Ken Kesey to Timothy Leary and was one of Kesey's Merry Pranksters. From the jacket: If "memoirabilia" were a word, it would perfectly describe "O the Clear Moment." In this enormously appealing "implied autobiography," Ed McClanahan has assembled a gathering of what he calls "coming-of-old-age" stories that are quirky, lyrical, and hilarious, all told in the inimitable voice of one of this generation's best southern chroniclers of American life.
