Summary
Twenty-rive miles long and a mile wide, Elysiana is an island off the coast of New Jersey sitting astride the convergence of powerful fault lines--social, political and existential. It's a place of beauty and insanity, shared by the angelic and profane. Where cops, criminals, prodigies and the promiscuous find themselves at the haphazard mercy of a lunatic providence
Summary
In the summer of 1969, life on the sunny New Jersey resort island of Elysiana simmers as town cops feud with the beach patrol, fed-up wives elude their slimy husbands, local politicians double-cross each other, lots of dope flows everywhere, and various needy, wounded people--such as a brain-damaged lifeguard, a young woman from Chicago who fled her lecherous dad, and a smalltime criminal who's also a maniac surfer--look for reasons to go on
