This first volume of Jon Alexander Young's new trilogy A Baby Boomer's Last Stand: A True Story of a Novel Life from Truman to Trump, is an insightful biography of an entrepreneur that millions of people probably thought they knew, after having seen him onstage or appearing in all forms of the media for the past fifty years, but actually never really knew at all.
This first volume of Jon Alexander Young’s new trilogy A Baby Boomer’s Last Stand: A True Story of a Novel Life from Truman to Trump, is an insightful biography of an entrepreneur that millions of people probably thought they knew, after having seen him onstage or appearing in all forms of the media for the past fifty years, but actually never really knew at all.
Throughout the last half of the twentieth century, this baby boomer was pioneer in many cultural changes that occurred in America during that time while also trying to show people how to have fun….at least for a while.
During his unique and different career choices as an editor and publisher of a ground breaking national newspaper; one of America’ s first nightclub and disco promoters; an award winning songwriter and theatrical producer; to a “sometimes” rock star and even well-known gambler and poker player; this baby boomer crossed paths and partied with hundreds of world famous entertainers and celebrities, politicians, sports legends, rock stars, and even some notorious mobsters.
But most never saw any connections between those aspects of his life when they may have met him, because it all depended on what name he was using at the time.
These volumes of books are more than the typical sex, drugs and rock and roll story, but are a very personal and detailed recollection of the funny, crazy, hedonistic, dramatic and fateful decisions that many may associate with their own personal journeys during those times.
From Las Vegas, Hollywood and Beverly Hills, to eventually almost every corner of the United States (and sometimes the world), this journey should bring smiles to those who remember the people, places, events, and especially the music of the baby boomer era.
The reader can experience “walking in the shoes” of somebody who some people may condemn today, but also somebody who once was looked at with envy before it became too “politically incorrect” to do so.
From Truman to Trump was a long journey for most baby boomers and it all starts here.
