For those amongst you who do not care, or haven’t bothered to care about Jazz, all I can say is that you’re missing a great deal out of life.

Baron's Court

Baron’s Court, All Change is the Holy Grail of Beatnik novels. Terry Taylor’s only published book, unavailable for decades, documents one summer in the life of the unnamed sixteen year-old narrator. He leaves his suburban home and boring job as a shop assistant for a pad in central London, courtesy for the money he makes from a break into dealing dope. Along the way he dabbles in spiritualism and is seduced by an older woman. This was the first UK novel to mention LSD. The book is introduced by Stewart Home, long a champion of Baron’s Court.

Available in store and online.
