An epic novel of passion, loss, and discovery set in the days that defined a generation.

Vernon Case is missing. For Cal Stewart, a disc jockey in Harriet, Mississippi, Vernon is much more than a runaway. He is the only heir of Po Case, the old man who raised Cal like a father. With an oath to bring Vernon home, Cal is caught up in the winds that whip the American firestorm in 1968, the year of RFK and King and Daley’s army in Chicago.

A Detroit Buddhist, a ghost of a best friend, a band gone underground on the Boston wharves, a girl-woman lover and soulmate—all swirl together in a river of change that sweeps Cal from his homeland to another America. For Cal and everyone he meets, and for all who knew that precious time or want to know it, Long Time Gone is the way it was.
