This first collection of writings from Timothy Leary's 600 boxes of papers and correspondence opens a window on the ideas that inspired the counterculture from the 1960s to the present. As the diverse texts assembled here show, Leary cultivated interests that ranged across experimentation with hallucinogens, social change and legal reform, and mysticism and spirituality, with a passion to determine what lies beyond our consciousness. Along with accounts of his life as a fugitive, here are encounters with Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Ken Kesey, Aldous Huxley, John Lennon, and Carl Sagan. Jennifer Ulrich organizes this rich material into an annotated narrative of Leary's adventurous life, an epic quest that had a lasting impact on American culture.
