It’s Chris Jagger’s turn to lift the lid on one of the most colorful and exotic periods in British cultural history. He unrolls an insider’s tale of growing up among the bombsites and ration books of post-war Dartford, weaving through the glittery underground of late 1960s countercultural London, and spending months in India before most trod that path. He covers the highs and lows of acting and film work, and the pursuit of his own unique musical adventures that have resulted in a number of albums and gigs across the world. Ultimately though it’s the beguiling story of a close-knit family and deep brotherly ties.

About the Author

Chris Jagger has been busy, as, it seems, he always is. There's been the song writing: adding to the pile of 100+ compositions he's created, recorded, and had published over the years and heard on the dozen albums he's released, some solo, some with his band Atcha! And there's been the small scale animal husbandry: he and his wife, Kari-Ann keep chickens and sheep at the farmhouse near Glastonbury they've called home for 20 years. Chris spent lockdown completing his long-in-the-works memoir and autobiography Talking To Myself. It's a rich, detailed, hilarious, gossipy tale that digs deep.
