Praise for Aldous Huxley’s Hands

1458498_431371003710688_3654313972731525021_n   “The psychedelic Sixties didn’t begin in the 1960s. That much is certain after reading Aldous Huxley’s Hands ….”
– Ben Fong-Torres, former senior editor, Rolling Stone; columnist,
San Francisco Chronicle

“Allene Symons has written an intriguing combination of an Aldous Huxley biography, a smart daughter’s memoir of her father, and science–ranging from schizophrenia to paranormal consciousness to psychedelics … It’s an absorbing and beguiling read.” 
Lisa See, author of China Dolls, Snow Flower
and the Secret Fan,
and  On Gold Mountain
