Murder at the Conspiracy Convention and Other American Absurdities
Paul Krassner was a cofounder of the Youth International Party, the Yippies. A former Merry Prankster, he has counted among his friends Ken Kesey, Lenny Bruce, Groucho Marx (who took LSD with the author), Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, John Lennon, and Larry Flynt. Founder/editor of the journal The Realist, Krassner is considered by some to be the most outrageous cultural critic of his era. Writings collected in this volume include recent articles from the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Playboy, George, High Times, In These Times, and Penthouse. From John Lennon to JonBenet Ramsey, from Charles Manson to Monica Lewinsky, from Timothy McVeigh to America's New War on terrorism, Krassner once again proves that he is one of the smartest, funniest, and most incisive political and cultural critics writing today.
