Bawdy, hilarious, and brisk, The Secret of Life tours the sixties with Conrad Bunger, alter ego of award-winning cyberpunk Rudy Rucker. Almost suicidally reckless, Conrad doesn't seem destined to reach legal drinking age. However, thanks to the supernatural powers he manifests when in crisis, not even the most severe mishaps interrupt his quest for booze, girls, and enlightenment. From a Catholic high school to college, he gradually awakens to his secret identity as an energy being from outer space. His solemn commission: to proceed incognito and return with the ultimate prize—knowledge of the Secret of Life. Problem is, he's having too darn much fun to keep it together.
