Reviews are trickling in:
“A wonderful romp from San Francisco to its northern satrapy of the Russian River area in Sonoma County. For those who remember the era (Summer of Love), Don't Stop the Music is a delicious summary of memory.”
San Francisco Museum and Historical Society
"If one is looking for honest government, honest people, honest anything, this is not the book to read. But, on the other hand, John McCarty has put together a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love (1967) that is cheerful and entertaining and even pays tribute to the beauty of west Sonoma County..."
Sonoma County Historical Society
"The author's novel captures the city's sixties cultures: hippies, Hell's Angels, crooked politicians, druggies, prostitutes and draft-dodgers. Somehow McCarty manages to build sympathy for his motley crew as they embark on a classic road trip from San Francisco to rural northern California."
Northern California Fulbright Association
"A tasty well-paced read with colorful characters you might have, or wish you had known, discovering themselves amid the denizens of America's Left Bank during the most loving and eye-opening revolution in America's history. Familiar folks, home-grown scenery, and candid attitudes will put you happily in the middle of all the action."
