This is a young man’s wild stories told with an older man’s wisdom. It speaks to anyone with an interest in the 60s and 70s, subcultures (particularly bikers and hippies), and tells the stories of young men and women who hang out on street corners waiting for something to happen. “Stories I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You” chronicles Andy Romanoff’s screwed-up years, how he survived them, and how he went on to make a meaningful life for himself.
Andy Romanoff’s memoir chronicles his messed-up years and how he survived long enough to transition out of them. Filled with colorful storytelling, Romanoff takes you along for the ride as he makes a meaningful life for himself without turning his back on the person he’d been or the places he’d come from. “Stories I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You” is a wild ride filled with tales of getting thrown out of five high schools; stealing cars and motorcycles; getting tossed in jail; finding his way into the sleazy end of the film business; being there for the invention of Gore Films; spending time with counterculture legends like Ken Kesey, the Hog Farm, and Nick Ray; then slowly learning about love, life, and death as he becomes a reluctant success. Come along with him as he shares eighty years of stories, learning to accept success, friendship, and family while raising hell along the way.
