Author Dan Richter took a year's leave of absence as lead performer at the American Mime Theatre and teacher at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts to study mimetic forms around the world, and was swept up in the exploding counter culture. Richter starred in and choreographed the opening of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. With his friends Allen Ginsburg, Gregory Corso and William S. Burroughs, Richter helped produce and read his poetry at the legendary Albert Hall poetry reading, as well as publishing their poetry. A close friend of Yoko Ono's, the focus of the memoir is the four years Richter lived and worked with John Lennon and Yoko Ono from 1969 to 1973. The Beatles, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, Andy Warhol, Bob Dylan and many other figures from rock 'n' roll and the arts fill the pages of the memoir. The book reveals an intimate insider's look, chronicling everything from battles with heroin addiction, John and Yoko's concerts, their political activities, films, the breakup of the Beatles, to the making of the album Imagine.
