The Outhouse Gang
Neil S. Plakcy
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Seven fathers raising sons in the 1960s and 70s, facing the challenges of changing times and attitudes as the suburbs encroach on small-town life.
One Halloween they bond together for a rash protest against the strictures of the times and drag an outhouse from the countryside into the center of town.
Over the next twenty years, they'll recreate this event every Halloween, as their sons grow up and join them.
A cross between Iron John and How to Make An American Quilt, The Outhouse Gang is an insightful look at what it meant to be a father, and a son, in those tumultuous times.
