Writer and producer John Higgs sends info about an upcoming book he is currently completing, on the life of Timothy Leary:
I thought you might be interested to hear about a biography of Timothy Leary which I have written, and which will be published next May on the 10th anniversary of Leary’s death. It’s called “I Have America Surrounded: The Life of Timothy Leary”, and it’s been written with access to all Leary’s papers and letters and the full co-operation of his estate and archivist. It’s a mix of both the adventure of his life and the ideas that drove him on, and I think the first book to get some perspective on his life and his influence. There is also a strong focus on his fugitive life after his prison break and his collaboration with the FBI, stories that have never really been told properly before.
Though the book is still 6 months away, you can find more information about it at the newly opened official website. You can also sign up for the mailing list to be notified of progress on the book, and of events relating to the 10th anniversary of Leary’s departure from this mortal coil.
