Days in the Life - Voices from the English Underground, 1961-71

Author(s): Jonathon Green


'Jonothan Green offers a time trip from late-fifties CND, beatniks and bop to the threshold of our own decade's designer revolutionaries and style warriors...His chosen form is the oral history pioneered by Studs Terkel in which cross-cut voices recount a shared experience or epoch...what anecdotes!' - "Guardian". Green has collected 101 quintessential sixties groovers and lovingly teased out their memories, all of them refreshingly self-critical and remarkably sharpened by hindsight' - "Glasgow Herald". 'This is the first publication I've seen on the 1960s to address all closely the question: how did it feel in that dawn to be alive? ...An action packed tapestry of illuminating flashbacks' - "Spectator".
