5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Sixties Memoir - Five Stars Are Not Enough !, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Sixties (Paperback)
They say that if you can remember the sixties, you weren't there.

Well, this fantastic book is positive proof that the above saying is rubbish, as Barry Miles was very much there and always seemed to be at the epicentre of everything that was "happening" (man), like some counter-cultural Zelig.

Miles first came to prominence as the founder of the Indica Gallery and the notorious International Times and thereafter built a successful career as a publisher, writer and critic in the fields of art, literature (majoring on the writers of the beat generation) and contemporary music.

This is a well-written and enormously entertaining book that is filled with Miles' pithy observations and laugh-out-loud anecdotes concerning the eccentric bohemian types he encountered.

His sequel In The Seventies is as good, if not better and the various literary and musical biographies he has written are also well worth checking out.

Truly a "must read" !
