To read "And the Hippies Came" is to find yourself surrounded by names and places that became history, but it will also surprise you with the sheer force of its stories and conflicts. During his time, Abreu was eulogized by Julio Cortazar, he wrote with his ear affixed to his era and in his pen there was a pulse of pop culture that gave immediacy to everything he wrote. It is this that makes the fact that he has been lost to memory since he departed from this world all the more inexplicable and inexcusable. In this, his quintessential first book of twelve short stories, Manuel Abreu Adorno explores the hallucinating dimensions of life through the perspective of different social classes. Manuel Abreu Adorno's forgotten legacy is revived with this re-edition of his book of short stories, "And the Hippies Came", published originally in 1978 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The book, which has been out of print for nearly three decades will be made available for the first time ever in this edition from 7Vientos.
