Overview


Cultural Writing. Memoir. In the retrospective memoir TRIPPING B.H. Friedman, author of numerous novels, stories, plays and monographs, takes us behind the scenes for an intimate look at Timothy Leary's inner circle, a group of teachers, students and artists who participated in drug research and experimentation throughout much of the sixties. Based on his detailed journals as well as correspondence with Leary and others, the author paints a fascinating candid portrait of the firsthand effects of "tripping," and the ultimate price that some paid when dreams of innocence and liberation turned into nightmares. A true flashback to a turbulent time of excess and exhilaration, TRIPPING is the dramatic account of one man's journey through personal and professional upheaval and toward enlightenment. TRIPPING "extends beyond its frame into a study of the relationship between biography and fiction, subject and object, hero and anti-hero...A serious and subtle achievement"--Stanley Kunitz.
