Miles: A Conversation reveals what could have been a banal story of Barry Miles’ plan to start a bookstore with his friends in mid-1960’s London that took a pleasantly bizarre turn. What began as a simple idea led to Miles cavorting with the most influential pop stars of his generation, whom he introduced to the most radical avant-garde artists and poets. This often hilarious chat portrays how Miles and his friends changed counterculture history.
Barry Miles is the prolific author of dozens of books related to the London underground and counterculture. A few titles include Call Me Burroughs (1994), London Calling: A Countercultural History of London Since 1945 (2010), and Paul McCartney: Many Years from Now (1997). barrymiles.co.uk
