This memoir describes a life that has taken twists and turns that range from the comical to the traumatic to the simply bizarre. It describes a colorful Boston area upbringing that exposes Dee Hill to congenial mobsters and vigilante teenagers, with a larger than life father who harbors violent tendencies.
Dee Hill seems to be a magnet for unusual scenarious, big personalities and general wackiness. His eclectic upbringing leads him to seek adventure far from his hometown. Stints in Europe and across the U.S. result in brushes with cold war intrigue and eccentric celebrities. He hobnobs with communists, hippies and bureaucrats from London to Japan to Boulder, Colorado.
