"I was born and raised in San Francisco. Sveilich shows us the journey the Bay Area traveled musically (jazz, soul, rock and roll) and socially in the City and suburbs. Conservatives were trying to resist the coming changes brought on by the counterculture. A soulful look at the ever-changing area seen through a young girl’s eyes and her unique household.
~Johnnie Bamont, Saxophonist, Huey Lewis and the News
"Who doesn’t want to read about sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll? The book conjures up images of California’s Glory Days, that pageant of sun, freedom, and playful existentialism. This humorous first-hand and soul-wrenching account of a girl’s rocky road to adulthood evokes a personal
and collective shock of recognition."
~Charlotte Daigle, former magazine editor (Antiques and Fine Art, Cowboys and Indians), author, and painter who once dated Jerry Garcia, lived in an Eichler,
and still wants to ban the bomb
"The author’s candid life story is really a love story about life. Much of it wraps around her family’s mid-century modern castle built by master developer Joseph Eichler. One cannot read about Sveilich’s life without becoming immersed in her story and wanting to be her friend. Only great writing can achieve that. And if no legacy is so rich as honesty, as Shakespeare once said, then with the publication of this memoir Sveilich’s legacy is set in stone."
