Going Nowhere Sideways is a Coming of Middle Age story that spans 20 years beginning at Woodstock and ending with the demolition of the Berlin Wall. It traces the life of Molly Williams as she searches for her life's purpose. She questions motherhood, the wisdom of unconditional love, her sexuality, the politics of the day, and through journal entries, humorous reflections, and a nervous breakdown, heads into her middle years with the strength and openness to relish life's surprises. The novel is a mix of large-hearted bawdiness and refined sensibilities. Molly takes you on a journey of memories long ago obscured by the hype and break neck pace of the digital age – to a time when the country was in turmoil and everyone was trying to find a deeper meaning and context to the chaos. Molly's tale is at once tender, intelligent, at times infuriating, and completely human and while it takes her 20 years to figure it out, it has seemed all too brief for many readers who have said repeatedly they couldn’t put the book down.
