|Description:||307 pages ; 22 cm|
Not surprisingly, Lisa grew up craving conformity - giving her mother makeovers and arranging their secondhand furniture in inspired ways - but she also came to share many of the values her parents held dear: independence, frankness, and unsparing self-examination. In the buttoned up world of UCLA during the Reagan years, she went through a hippie revival phase, wearing batik dresses and Chairman Mao pins, a throwback amid the campus's Greek revivalists and young Republicans. Against that traditional backdrop, her parents' longtime activism took on new meaning, and at twenty-two, Michaels embarked on a trip through Asia, very much in the spirit of her upbringing.
Observant, luminous, and wry, Split captures both the vulnerability and heady freedom of a counterculture childhood.
