|Flashbacks: A Personal and Cultural History of an Era|
The 1990 Putnam edition
|Publisher||G. P. Putnam's Sons|
Flashbacks: A Personal and Cultural History of an Era is Timothy Leary's autobiography, published in 1983. It was reprinted in 1990 and 1997. The new edition has a foreword by William S. Burroughs, and a new afterword by Leary.
One of the most sensational aspects of the book is Leary's recollections of Mary Pinchot Meyer. Leary claims that in the spring of 1962, Mary had sought him out, asking for (and receiving) LSD, for use with her lover and other high ranking politicians. Leary was unaware at the time that the "lover" was John F. Kennedy.
A double cassette album which contains Leary reading selections of Flashbacks was published under the same name in 1989 by Dove Books on Tape, Inc.
