Hunga Dunga

I just had to write this book. It took a long time… almost 11 years! But I did not want to leave this world without telling it about a most wondrous group of people living in a most magical home located on an incredibly beautiful planet. I did not want people to forget there was a time when we almost returned to “the garden” and that maybe if we resurrect the values we lived by then, and hopefully still live by… we can persuade others to bring forth the world full of peace, joy and beauty that we all deserve. Hunga Dunga is available at fine bookstores everywhere and in all digital formats.


GIACCO GIORDANO IS INSANE! He has organic brain damage from too much LSD. He’s a borderline schizophrenic. He’s harmless, but incurable. The State awards him a paltry stipend, but enough to contribute to the communal coffers of Hunga Dunga and to pursue Enlightenment on a grand scale.

This is his story about that brief but unforgettable time in our history when flower children were sure peace and love would guide the planet. It was only a matter of time. Or so they thought. What happened? Giacco would like to remind you. Time is running out.

HUNGA DUNGA is often holy, often horny. Sometimes saintly, sometimes sexually explicit. From New York to Los Angeles, Lovelock to Woodstock, Tucson to Prince George, San Francisco to Twisp, and an amazing journey around the world in search of The Guru. You are in for some very strange rides. If you are lucky, you might find the secret to god-realization. But make sure you are sitting under a blanket.


Here are a few reviews:

“If you really want to understand peace and love, read this book! Admittedly hilarious, sexy, and outrageous, Hunga Dunga is a “how-to” book for getting us back to the garden. And we have to get ourselves back to the garden!” – Larry Brinkin, Senior Manager, Human Rights Commission, City of San Francisco.

“This is damned good stuff! Superlative dialogue. Written with a comfort and assuredness that vacuumed me into that world. Excellent. Amusing and poignant.” – Donald McRae, author of Conflict of Interest

“Phil Polizatto has given the world an amazing (and accurate) picture of that very special time in history. He’s woven such a sweet and beautiful story in such a conversational manner, that all the intellectual references gently drip like honey so that anyone can partake in the feast.” – Lee Balan, author of Exhumations and Alien Journal

“Polizatto is an unapologetic hippie and Hunga Dunga is his homage to hippiedom. He does an amazing job of showing us things through a new set of eyes and writing erotic scenes that are very hot and at the same time have a real innocence about them. Hunga Dunga is outrageous and very, very funny!” – BottomLine Magazine

“This just might be THE definitive Sixties novel! I can tell there’s an extremely literate and eloquent mind at work here. (Polizatto’s) descriptions are stunning, and there’s such a “being there” feeling that I can never regret I didn’t make the “hippie circuit” or even leave the country, because with this book, the picture is so detailed and complete, it’s almost like my own memories. In fact, clearer than my own memories.” – Pat Hartman, author of Ghost Town and Call Someplace Paradise.
