Summary :

Ray Shackleford is a veteran of failed bands who dreams of the 1960s and the music that never was. While trying to cope with the recent loss of his father and the emptiness of his marriage, he finds his dream-music recorded onto his tapedeck and is drawn into the past; revisiting Hendrix, Morrison and the Beatles, Ray "recreates" wonderful rock-and-roll recording sessions that never happened.

  • "Lewis Shiner is the most important and promising young writer on the scene today. Glimpses has the raw power of a documentary, a nitty-gritty, minute-by-minute evocation of a highly personal journey. Glimpses captures the sixties perfectly--I was there, and it was the way Shiner writes it. " Dr. Timothy Leary
