Flesh and Blood is an apocalyptic, penetrating, incisive new approach to the understanding of the unconscious mind. It is written entirely in brief, pointed quotations with Freud, Jung, Nietzsche, St. Paul, Hess, Doestoevsky, Stalin, and a host of other notables making periodic cameo appearances across its pages. These voices are then counterpointed by a rhythmic series of photographic images which jump like lasers right off the pages. The photos, some taken by the world's greatest artists, portray in intense and vivid detail both the Elysian loftiness and the aberrant grotesqueries of psychic life. Reviews by Timothy Leary, Robert Bly, Stanislav Grof, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and others.
