About this item
On a bus trip to a Catskill Mountain ashram, Rifka Kreiter recollects her past as she travels to meet Swamiji, another new guru on the scene in the bustling spiritual marketplace of 1976. Memories abound of an eventful childhood with an unstable mother on New York’s Upper West Side and in LA, of dancing the Twist at Manhattan’s Peppermint Lounge, and of sitting in against the war—as well as of a suicide attempt at eighteen, getting tear-gassed in Mississippi, surviving a string of broken love affairs, and more. A checkerboard ride through the fifties, sixties, and early seventies, Home Free is powered by the Kreiter’s passionate drive for pleasure, self-knowledge, and—above all—freedom from limitations, whether psychological, political, or spiritual. Ultimately, it is a joyful trip, as she strives to bust free, be it with drugs, therapy, political activism, or meditation.

I loved this book. I grew up in the 60's so I knew some of what she talked about but got to see it in a whole new light. Rifka takes us on a journey I won't soon forget. I was given this book as an arc from Netgalley for an honest review
