Bill Kelly's first novel - The Long Cool Summer of '65 Revisited

The Long Cool Summer of '65 Revisited  - Bill Kelly's first novel is light summer fiction, set in America's Greatest Family Resort in its most sinful hey days, where Easy Rider meets American Graffiti and collides with A Confederacy of Dunces.

"Awesome read" - Greg Gregory

"Great stuff!" - Publisher Rob Huberman

"Wow, sure brings back memories. Keep them coming. Your painting pictures and tickling memories and making us all feel younger. Thanks, Your summer friend from the summer of '69"
- Marks Connally

"Great, with an outstanding reminisce of the old school of life, from Somers Point all the way down. The entertainment in that era was astounding, the Jersey Shore produced so much talent that it later was recognized as the capitol of music in America. Good job, Bill, once again you have demonstrated what a great journalist/writer you are without a doubt..." - Joe Amato - Baltimore, Md.
