Fiction. A "novel of the counterculture," Gurney Norman's DIVINE RIGHT'S TRIP elicited comparison to Salinger and Kerouac upon its publication in 1971. "DIVINE RIGHT'S TRIP shows itself to be a subtly written and morally passionate epic of the counterculture, a fictional explication of the hopeful new consciousness come to birth.Divine Right is bigger than life, and in giving the story thus far of a segment of his generation, in prose nicely threaded between the vernacular and the symbolic, Gurney Norman has shown a noble reach and a healthy grasp." - John Updike

Review: Divine Right's Trip

User Review  - Jennifer Burchett - Goodreads

I read the Prologue by Urge at least 3 times, trying to begin. Then today, I finally felt ready. I read it all in one sitting, maybe afraid I couldn't *get back into* the trip. Final reaction: Far out. Read full review

Loved this time piece. Wonderful friend said "read this book to understand the 60's". I think he is right. Ride in the VW van Urge and see one young mans journey. Read full review
