Encounters with Beatles. The Hamptons' fabulous, beautiful, and absurd. Meditations on the unique natural beauty of the South Fork. The good old days before Montauk was overrun with hipsters. And here and there, adventures in Not-So-Incredible-India. Christopher Walsh, a reporter for The East Hampton Star, escaped New York to return to the place of his youth. In this collection of essays, he looks inward at the boy he once was and outward, sometimes in disbelief, at his once and present home. The author shares stories of his youth, when Montauk was relatively undiscovered country and the Hamptons were years from becoming the playground of the rich and famous and what some would consider a hideous self-parody. He recalls his life as a musician and music journalist, sharing experiences of rubbing shoulders with the likes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Elton John and Mary J. Blige, and, in the summer of 2014, a third Beatle, Ringo Starr. Readers can also visit India and experience some of its wonders, and its hazards, through the eyes of this faithful correspondent. Finally, the author returns to the South Fork of Long Island and finds, albeit fitfully, domestic bliss. "Into The Twilight" is Christopher Walsh's first book. He is presently completing an oral history of the storied Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, New York.
