DAN KASDAN is a private investigator working the hippy, dippy, trippy streets of San Francisco in "that time long, long ago, when adult males sewed embroidered strips, or astrological symbols, or peace signs on their shirts; young women ironed their hair straight and practiced inner voyages, sticking mandala decals on their hair irons; it was so long ago, in the misty reaches of the 60's, that chalk-faced street mimes were not yet obsolete.''
Dan's just one character among severall. There's also his beloved Priscilla, his best friend, a black police detective and a natty pornographer/drug lord. But, in the end, this isn't some "noir mystery or a gritty street drama but, as the ungainly title suggests...a fairly mundane love story," according to The New York Times.
