Fear and Loathing in Fitzrovia : The Bizarre Life of Writer, Actor, Soho Raconteur Julian Maclaren-Ross Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Since the first publication of 'Fear and Loathing in Fitzrovia' in 2003 there has been a resurgence of interest in his ground-breaking work and flamboyant personality. Synonymous though he is with Soho, his uniquely strange life included spells in the army and on the French Riviera.

So chaotic was his existence that he makes Jack Kerouac and Charles Bukowski appear models of stability and self-restraint.

During fifty-two hectic years Maclaren-Ross endured alchoholism, drug-induced psychosis, poverty, homelessness, imprisonment, near insanity and a Scotland Yard man-hunt.

At one stage he even stalked and planned to murder George Orwell's glamorous widow. 'Fear and Loathing in Fitzrovia' provides a vibrant and justly acclaimed portrait of Maclaren-Ross and the world he inhabited.
