BOOK REVIEW

'An in-yer-face celebration of all that was excessive, anarchic, socially disruptive and wildly exciting about the fabled youthquake that began in the 1950s...You name them, Mim was partying with them...narrated with breathless pace'

Val Hennessy, Daily Mail

..........................

'He was a true creature of the Sixties...utterly life-affirming'

Evening Standard

..........................


‘There are shades of Hunter S. Thompson in Scala’s helter skelter journey.... and hints of Kerouac in it’s wide-eyed abandon.... Scala is utterly irreverent in his treatment of the pillars of 1960’s London - Wealth, sex, drugs, and rock and roll’


Sunday Business Post (Ireland)

BOOK REVIEWS

"Mim is one of the great raconteurs and has many stories from his antics in the 60s. As his friends, we eventually persuaded him to write them down...(creating) one of the best evocations of the period that you are ever likely to come across"

John Hurt, actor

"For a flavour of what it was really like to live through the Swinging Sixties in London" ..."A Charming Book" The Times

PUNCH MAGAZINE REVIEW

"There have been a lot of books about the Sixties but very few have captured the excitement and uniqueness of the period. The best two, The best two, so far, are Mim’s book and Stoned by the Rolling Stones first manager Andrew Loog Oldham. You had to be there to appreciate the best decade of the 20th. century"
