Loaded Stories is now available

It’s a good thing children are resilient. San Francisco author Carl Hayes tours his California childhood and attempts to understand the secret histories of his two fathers, the first shot and killed while hitchhiking in Tennessee, the second a hard-partying outlaw immersed in the general mayhem of post-Manson Family Los Angeles. Lurching from psychedelic gun-packed nightmares to mountain-top “Partridge Family” harmonies, a unique family history shaped by the raucous ’70s is explored in this compelling personal essay.
