About the Edition

During the summer of 69, Elliot Tiber helped start the gay liberation movement and saved the Woodstock Festival from cancellation. But some of the best and most significant events of Tiber s life did not happen until After Woodstock. In this third volume of his memoirs, following the critically acclaimed Palm Trees on the Hudson and his breakout bestseller Taking Woodstock, Tiber chronicles his hilarious, madcap, and often heartbreaking adventures in the entertainment industry. Guided as much by chutzpah as by his creative drive, Tiber travels around the world, always looking to grab the brass ring. And everywhere he goes, from Hollywood to Brussels, Tiber makes his indelible, irreverent, unique mark. Along the way, Tiber meets the celebrated Belgian playwright and director Andre Ernotte. Over the course of his decades-long relationship with Ernotte, Tiber realizes his potential as a humorist and writer, and finds a way to cope with his difficult mother, whose second wedding in the hills of Israel gives new meaning to the Wailing Wall. The relationship is tested by the AIDS crisis and a string of professional disappointments, but ultimately endures the test of time. With Ernotte, Tiber finally learns the true meaning of love. A passionate and joyful evocation of a very different time, After Woodstock reminds us how the search for love and meaning drives us forward.

However, portions of this list had already been reconstructed by Woodstock fans earlier.   Taking Woodstock was Tiber’s own. After Taking Woodstock came Palm Trees, a book that most definitely suffers from Middle Child syndrome. Perhaps because it is the only book to not deal with Woodstock. Perhaps because it is the only one of Tiber’s not to have Woodstock in the title, but it is an oddball thing, this : Elliot Tiber.
