Uncensored, uncontained, and thoroughly demented, the memoirs of Paul Krassner are back in an updated and expanded edition. Paul Krassner, a€œfather of the underground pressa€ (People magazine), founder of the Realist, political radical, Yippie, and award-winning stand-up satirist, shares 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 counterculturea€™s ultimate, intimate, uproarious life on the fringes of society. Whether hea€™s writing about his friendship with controversial comic Lenny Bruce, introducing Groucho Marx to LSD, his investigation of Scientology, or John Kennedya€™s cadaver, no subject is too sacred to be skewered by Krassner. And yet his stories are soulful and philosophical, always authentic to his iconoclastic brand of personal journalism. As Art Spiegelman said, a€œKrassner is one of the best minds of his generational to be destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical, nakeda€”but mainly hysterical. His true wacky, wackily true autobiography is the definitive book on the sixties.a€But I have a niece who saw a manual typewriter, and she said, a€œWhata#39;s that for? ... thought for a moment, then he chose his words carefully and, with a twinkle in his eyea€”one of his main characteristicsa€”he said, Well, I believe that if Jews didna#39;t have circumcision, they would punch their babies in the nose and break them.
