If anyone is wondering what I’ve been doing for the past few years, here is the answer.
Looking for Alicia is the story of a woman born with the rebellious DNA of a typical 1960s radical, whose destiny was anything but typical.
The book explores how Alicia lived out her determination to make a difference in the world, and how her life can be a beacon – or a cautionary tale – for young people today.
This is a fundamentally human story, of an individual whose everyday life became entangled with history. But its broader relevance is more than just historical. It is also about how people deal with the circumstances they are dealt, and about human agency, the choices we make.
