Kentucky-born Clay meets Roads, a beatnik college drop-out with pretensions of being the next Kerouac. Suddenly Clay doesn't want to stay in Owensboro, become a mechanic and marry a hick girl from town. He wants to be like Allen Ginsberg, Coltrane, Miles Davis. Clay finds himself in New York City trying to make it. But America is hit by a string of horrifying events - the Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK's assassination, the Vietnam War. Is there a place for a literary life in times of political unrest? Any Day Now is an absorbing story of love, war and experimentation in '60s America.
