Eternal Graffiti by Peter Martin
When a book starts out with a quote from Leonard Cohen you know it's a good book because of what this songwriter is all about.
Starts with Owen and his friend as they grow up and get into trouble. As the years go by one got away to Venice beach area and another in a boys juvenile ranch til the fire.
Follows the people he meets and lives with and the fear of getting drafted as it's only in early 70's. I recall my brother waiting by the news report to see when his birthdate would come up.
Very influential people and they rub off on him. He is able to live and go to their dream vacation. I never expect to go there but have watch others climb to the top and how exhilarating it is.
Tragedy occurs with medical issues and they go visit the family in Ireland as they get on with their lives, together. The boys do meet up again and Owen is not convinced about the drugs...
More sadness and he is able to remember her as he continues to go on with his life...70s are so carefree, do what you want.
Love the retracing his steps of his past life. Emotional, in depth thoughts and actions, travel, small precious gifts, music of 70s, 101, etc really enjoyed this one!
Received this review copy from The Story Plant via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.

I received an ARC of this novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

A coming of age novel set in the 70s/80s. There are great characters.
