Impolite Interviewsby Paul Krassner
Synopses & Reviews
Krassner's Impolite Interviews delivers 21 of the most compelling encounters you will ever witness, from a 1959 interview with author Alan Watts to Timothy Leary in 1995 just weeks before he died, from Norman Mailer talking about sex to Jerry Garcia recounting what it was like to play the Pyramids. Each interview gives a unique take on major issues: Communism, segregation, the Cold War, the sexual revolution, the drug culture, by major personalities. Impolite Interviews presents perspectives as diverse as George Lincoln Rockwell (then head of the American Nazi Party) and spiritual master Ram Dass. Krassner offers readers an illuminating look at some of the most important figures of the second half of this century through the eyes of one of this era's most innovative journalists.
From a 1959 conversation with Alan Watts to a 1995 deathbed chat with Timothy Leafy, Impolite Interviews collects 20 of Paul Krassner's most candid, fractious, and revealing interviews, all of which originally ran in his notorious satirical magazine The Realist.
