Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Busted for pot in 1965, Timothy Leary was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He escaped, and thus began an almost farcical odyssey: the former West Point student and Harvard professor was now an acid-tripping fugitive. In this delightfully irreverent account, Leary describes his time in Algeria; how he was sheltered by an arms dealer in Switzerland; his exploits with the Weathermen and Eldridge Cleaver, who tried to hold him hostage; and his eventual capture and return to the United States. The book includes black and white illustrations throughout.
