Radio Eldorado again proves that Tyrone Jaeger is a “writer with a big heart, a delight in language, and a deft and subtle touch” (Lauren Groff). Painting on a canvas large enough to encompass all the hopes and fears of a generation, Jaeger’s novel transports the reader back to the 1960s and an America rife with internal conflict and anxiety: Vietnam, the ever-present threat of mutual assured nuclear destruction, Free Love – a psychedelic funhouse of social anxiety – all played out to a proto-punk rock soundtrack guaranteed to blow your mind.
Populated with characters across the political and social spectrum, Radio Eldorado focuses on the members of a band called the Wound Tights and their entourage of friends, family, and groupies as they all find ways to personally negotiate the volatile landscape, trying desperately to find answers. What is marriage? Parenthood? Music? Country? all in a world seemingly on the brink of violence.
In vibrant, frankly unforgettable language, Radio Eldorado takes us on a rollicking tour of the past in a way that radically anticipates our own restless present.
