Read full description of the books The Duke Don't Dance:
"The Duke Don't Dance" captures the spirit of the "Silent Generation;" those born too late to share the triumphs of the Greatest Generation, too early to know only the privilege of the Baby Boom ascendancy and in too few numbers to assure a proper identity and enduring legacy. The novel is as accessible to Generations X and Y as the aging contemoraries of the fading eras that followed World War II, told from their perspectives in each passing decade, not their retrospective views as elders.
The novel is set in Washington, DC and a number of domestic and foreign locations: Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War era, Africa during the struggles for independence, the Soviet Union and elsewhere. It follows the intermingled lives of several men and women of the Silent Generation. It is an irreverent journey through minefields of love, sex, race and social change that the protagonists first encounter as maturing adults in the post-World War II era, as their generation invents rock and roll, fills the streets in the struggle for racial equality, bleeds in the conflicts of the cold war and opens doors to the sexual revolution and feminist awakening.
