    • Abstract:
      Summary: "The meadow outside Bethel, New York, is eerily silent. Yesterday it held half a million cheering young people. Only a few hours ago, the closer, Jimi Hendrix, recast the "Star Spangled Banner" as a firefight in the Mekong Delta. Mark Berger's been here the whole time. Arriving four days early, he helped set up kitchens and paths. During the festival, he worked to calm kids tripped out on acid, maneuvered a water truck through a sea of spectators, and fell in love, twice. Woodstock was the party of the century, the Sixties condensed into seventy-two hours, and proof that peace and love could turn a potential disaster into a mythic celebration of life. Now, it's decision time: Does he board a converted school bus and move to a commune in New Mexico or return to New York City to teach in a community-controlled school district? Something's Happening Here begins in Brooklyn eight years earlier, in 1961, where Berger, determined to be true to himself, pledges to live his life boldly. With buddies like Zooby and Bird, he experiences the thrilling fear of joy rides and the roller coaster of mind-altering drugs. He's swept up in the energy of renegade writers and musicians and connects with the counterculture's spirit. Scenes abound: catching the Drifters at a Brooklyn R&B club; digging Allen Ginsberg reading his poetry in a Tennessee steak house; having ony a few seconds to talk his way out of being drafted. At Woodstock it all comes together--who he is, what he believes, and which path he has to take."--Provided by publisher.
