    This book was great and incredibly ahead of it s time for the 70 s It definitely has a muchcurrent feel to it, almost like a Rick Moody novel written now but set in the 70 s except written in the 70 s and way better than anything Rick Moody has ever done Oakland livers will enjoy the references to Lake Merrit, Grand Ave., Children s Fairyland, although I m pretty sure the Piedmont experimental school has been gone for years.

    3.5 or maybe even 3.75 stars This was a bit of a departure from McCall s normal writing although this was written before most of his other fiction books , told from the point of view of 13 year old John Jr aka Jack the Bear about his life in 1970s Oakland with his father and his 3 year old brother, Dylan, and their crazy neighbors.
