Three longish short stories, character studies set in Southern California in the late 1960s/early 1970s, men at work telling each other stories from their lives – funny, poignant, dark secrets – lives that are about to change. As the title suggests, all tales are based on true stories, fictionalize accounts of actual events, and that includes the stories the men tell one another – men shooting the breeze as they play poker, strikers holding a picket line; a young man getting a hair cut as he listens to his old barber, who worked in Hollywood during the Golden Age of cinema; the young rockers of Hothouse Flowers playing at the nightclub, the Cheetah, West. And be sure to check out the “soundtrack” of music URLs accompanying “Cheetah, West.” (PG-rated: Adult Situations; Language.)
