HERE COMES A NEW BOOK!
“Elvis Presley, the Hell’s Angels, Hunter S. Thompson, Truman Capote, the Beatles, Judy Garland, Hank Williams, Jack Kerouac, Johnny Cash, JFK, the Manson Family and Adolf Hitler. All of the above were, at one time or another, to put it bluntly, speedfreaks.
Speed-Speed-Speedfreak traces the criminal and cultural use of amphetamine and its growing use through each new and destructive cycle. Speed is both one of the biggest social problems facing the country today, an indispensible component of the doctor’s medicine bag, and a huge and abiding influence on artists, musicians and writers."
Formatted in the shape of an amphetamine capsule, this book presents award-winning author Mick Farren’s examination of the curious history of the world’s addiction to speed, both in its political and cultural manifestations.”
The book won’t be out until July 1st, but it can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
