Product Description

The "utterly unputdownable" (Sunday Times) and scandalous chronicle of Britain's wild and wonderful '60s cultural transformation.

As publisher of the satirical magazine Oz --the hippies' handbook and a monument to psychedelia --Richard Neville was at the center of a cyclone of radicals, rock musicians, artists, and hustlers. Oz was at the forefront of the '60s underground movement, featuring articles by Germaine Greer, groundbreaking design by pop artist martin sharp, and cartoons by Robert crumb. When the magazine was tried for obscenity, John Lennon and Yoko Ono marched in protest. With an updated chapter on the legacy of flower power a generation later, Neville demythologizes the 1960s in this hilarious, colorful, and provocative memoir of the time.

"More dopers, visionaries, groupies, loonies, con artists, and sharks than you can wave a spliff at . . . Hugely enjoyable." --Time Out

"An entrancingly wicked account of the greatest decade ever." --Marie Claire

"The perfect sixties book . . . the definitive guide to the sex and drugs shebang." --Independent

Richard Neville (born 1941) is a writer and self-described futurist who came to fame as a coeditor of the counterculture magazine Oz in the 1960s and early 1970s.
