Be Not Content is a coming-of-age novel set in San Jose, California, in the mid 1960s-describing William Craddock's experiences as a young acid-head. This is a hip, profound, and wonderfully-written book, a unique chronicle of the earliest days of the great psychedelic upheaval. Be Not Content is filled with warmth and empathy, tragic at times, and very funny in spots, a wastrel masterpiece where laughter plays counterpoint against the oboes of doom. A mystical underground masterpiece.

taking a title from Christ's statement 'Be not content with this system of things' the main character Abel Eregore moves from poet to biker to human. Amongst all the confusion of the emerging hippie/berekely scene, were the legendary Acid Tests challenging those who dared to seek something beyond the world that had been handed to them. the most demanding judge is one's own soul, and while you may not find the answers, you are still required to seek.
