 About the Book 

Grab a pack of KOOLs, rev up the Camara, and tune in Stairway to Heaven --youre day-tripping back to 1973. Thats the summer Eddie Sacks, having flunked out of college, is driving a cab and trying to figure out exactly who and what he wants to be.MoreGrab a pack of KOOLs, rev up the Camara, and tune in Stairway to Heaven --youre day-tripping back to 1973. Thats the summer Eddie Sacks, having flunked out of college, is driving a cab and trying to figure out exactly who and what he wants to be. The only place he finds common ground with his Nixon-loving, cigar-puffing dad (a.k.a. the Captain) is at Belmont Park, where Secretariat makes his historic bid for the Triple Crown. Into the mix throw the Captains brother, Gene, of the Qiana shirts and rabid sexual imagination, and Genes sultry daughter, the aptly named Randi. Meanwhile, paralyzing decisions loom, until the moment when Eddie is forced to take the measure of the father he fears and the uncle he pities, and finally define himself.
