EXPERIENCE THE SOCIAL TURMOIL OF 1960S AMERICA IN THIS IMMERSIVE AND PROVOCATIVE WORK OF POLITICAL FICTION, BY ACCOMPLISHED AUTHOR, AND AWARD-WINNING ACTIVIST, DAN CHODORKOFF!SUGARING DOWN is the compelling and richly tapestried novel of passion and tragedy, by prestigious author and activist, Dan Chodorkoff. Now available from Fomite Press! SUGARING DOWN spins the harrowing tale of two young activists, David and Jill, as they struggle to build a new society on an abandoned farm in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom in 1968. Soon, their idealistic dreams shatter as the realities of the anti-war movement devastates their small commune, spiraling the couple down towards two very different paths. SUGARING DOWN is a thrilling and contemplative examination of 1960s counterculture, even as it simultaneously delves into the rich history of Vermont.Praise for Sugaring Down has been universal and enthusiastic.“With his vivid depictions of communal life in Vermont and the radical underground in New York City, Chodorkoff has delivered a mythic tale of love, revolution, and redemption.”–Susan Ritz, author of A Dream to Die For“The northern Vermont village he writes of is to some eyes a nowhere but in Chodorkoff’s hands it feels remarkable—an essence that speaks to dark perplexities and calm, sun-blessed mornings.”–Baron Wormser, author of The Road Washes Out in Spring“In writing SUGARING DOWN I wanted to explore a place and a time that were important for me personally, and important in terms of the emergence of the culture we live in today,” explains Dan Chodorkoff, “The late 60’s were a time of significant social change; a new ethos was emerging, and young people were in the forefront. We questioned everything and challenged many forms of hierarchy and domination; racism, sexism, imperialism, and capitalism. Our rebellion led to a great outpouring of creativity, and a movement intent on actualizing our vision of a new society. The movement accomplished a great deal, but also sowed the seeds of its own destruction through its nihilism and excess. SUGARING DOWN gave me an opportunity to reexamine those days of love and rage and to tell a story of Vermont in all of its glory and harshness.”
