By Paul Krassner

Paul Krassner, “father of the underground press” (People magazine), founding father of the Realist, political radical, Yippie, and award-winning stand-up satirist, stocks his stark raving adventures with the likes of Lenny Bruce, Abbie Hoffman, Norman Mailer, Ken Kesey, Groucho Marx, and Squeaky Fromme, revealing the patriarch of counterculture’s final, intimate, uproarious lifestyles at the fringes of society.

Whether he’s writing approximately his friendship with arguable comedian Lenny Bruce, introducing Groucho Marx to LSD, his research of Scientology, or John Kennedy’s cadaver, no topic is simply too sacred to be skewered via Krassner. And but his tales are soulful and philosophical, constantly actual to his iconoclastic model of non-public journalism.

As artwork Spiegelman acknowledged, “Krassner is without doubt one of the most sensible minds of his generational to be destroyed via insanity, ravenous, hysterical, naked—but normally hysterical. His precise wacky, wackily real autobiography is the definitive ebook at the sixties.”
