An ideological nomad searching for she’s-not-sure-what can land in strange territory. Like a child digging through candies in a box, author Cia McKoy ditches her Kennedy-esque lifestyle and pokes the underbelly of heady new ideas swirling about in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Poking Chocolates & Other Rude Habits (en route to the Sweet Life) brings that experimental era to life.

In this laugh out loud yet tender memoir, McKoy bumps into the intriguing, odd and famous on her search for wisdom and a superior brand of love.

Crammed with adventure, the author’s wide-ranging quest exposes the underside of Princeton, the peace movement, TM, drugs, gay dance clubs and other intriguing destinations. Ultimately a scandalous encounter on a country road in England wins her mind and snags her heart.
