When Richard Neville arrived in London in 1966 after a six-month overland trek from Australia, the first thing he did was visit Bibi: "The famous boutique throbbed with The Animals, cash registers and scantily clad women...the air was tinged with the perfume of Arabia, and some of its hash...I nearly fainted". Five years later he was gaoled for 15 months for publishing an obscene article, "Schoolkids Oz". In the intervening years, as editor of "Oz", the hippies handbook and monument to psychedelia, Neville was the darling of the in-crowd: the liberal intellectuals, writers, fashion designers, rock musicians, artists and business people. Through it all he remained amused and objective, frequently startling even his closest admirers with his unexpected views on everything from free love to the Vietnam War.

About the Author:

Richard Neville is the author of the cult bestseller THE LIFE AND TIMES OF CHARLES SOBRHAJ, co-authored by the Australian journalist Julie Clarke, whom he later married. His novel PLAYING AROUND was published in 1991. As a columnist and broadcaster he remains a controversial social commentator, and his fifth book, OUT OF MY MIND, contains the best of his output from the end of OZ to the present day. He lives with his wife and two daughters near Sydney, on a bush property within the Blue Mountains National park in New South Wales, Australia.
