great books #4 (Where the Heart Beats by Kay Larson)

This is a good read for anyone interested in one of the greatest cultural shifts in America of the last half century. I confess that I still don't know what to make of Cage. What I mean by that is that I haven't completely emotionally connected with his music or his art work. That said, he still fascinates me because of his relentless quest into the inner world of creativity, his searching beneath the subterranean world of an America of indescribable material achievements during this period. Of course, he knew 'everyone', a host of characters who were also exploring this terrain under the radar of popular culture. What was his legacy? I guess I'll know more when I finish this enjoyable book. 
More to be revealed.
