Books about the 70s and 80s,
This review is from: My Life in Orange (Paperback)
Of all the books available that exlore the dark underbelly of the quest for peace and love, Tim Guest's account gets right to the bone. The chilling story is made especially poignant by its accurate reference to real events and the movements and developments of the Shree Rajneesh Ashram as it moved and spread in the 70s and 80s.
There are victims and heroines in any life story yet it is difficult to decide which side of the fence each charcter of Guest's story occupies. In a sense, the post-war generation, and their off-spring, seem destined to fail in their quest to change the world and yet compelled, nonetheless to try.
If the worst possible harm can be done with the best possible intentions, Tim Guest's 'My Life in Orange' shows us just how.
