Now Dig This : The Unspeakable Writings of Terry Southern, 1950-1995 Paperback


The only guy to wear shades on the Sgt. Pepper album cover, Terry Southern was an audacious, outrageous American original.

This book is a collection of his writings spanning the gamut of his stellar career.

From his reminiscences of early days as a pornographer to his account of life neck-high in girls and cocaine aboard the Rolling Stone's tour jet, this is a journey from the buttoned-down 1950s through the sexual revolution, rock'n'roll and independent cinema, which saw the birth of "Easy Rider", co-written and produced by Southern himself.

The book features Terry's "Esquire" piece covering the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention with Jean Genet and William S.

Burroughs, and his remembrances of 20th-century legends like Abbie Hoffman, Kurt Vonnegut Jr and director Stanley Kubrick, with whom he wrote "Dr Strangelove".
