Description

Stevie Stevenson graduates from college and embraces the liberating California lifestyle in award-winning author April Sinclair's follow-up to her "vivid and brilliant" (San Francisco Review of Books) debut novel Coffee Will Make You Black.

Growing up black in 1960s Chicago, Jean "Stevie" Stevenson came of age amid the tumult of the Civil Rights Movement, learning to value not just her race and gender but her sexuality as well. Now, nearly a decade later, Stevie is a college graduate enjoying a week of vacation in San Francisco. After getting a taste of the bohemian life, she can't bring herself to return home to her family and journalism career in Chicago. Instead she's determined to spread her wings and discover her true self, experimenting with free love, gay pride, and vegetarianism; forging a friendship with a gay disco queen; and taking a job at the feminist Personal Change Counseling Center. As she falls in and out of love, Stevie takes time to observe both the absurd and the liberating qualities of the West Coast hippie lifestyle - and is constantly reminded that the journey to self-discovery likely has no end point.

Written with the same bright wit and endless charm that made Coffee Will Make You Black such a beloved book, Ain't Gonna Be the Same Fool Twice is a delightful continuation of Stevie's story that was hailed by Salon as "ripely funny, unpretentious, and sincere".
