Description >
In these books the famous and influential writer tells of his "extraordinary" experiences with mescaline and the new worlds on the other side of the doors. These books, showing Huxley's enthusiasm and command of the language, help set the stage for Western use of psychedelics.    - Mind Books
 
Reviews/Excerpts >
Reviews - 

Sometimes a writer has to revisit the classics, and here we find that "gonzo journalism"--gutsy first-person accounts wherein the author is part of the story--didn't originate with Hunter S. Thompson or Tom Wolfe. Aldous Huxley took some mescaline and wrote about it some 10 or 12 years earlier than those others. The book he came up with is part bemused essay and part mystical treatise--"suchness" is everywhere to be found while under the influence. This is a good example of essay writing, journal keeping, and the value of controversy--always--in one's work.  -Amazon
