About this author

Terry Taylor was the young lover of Ida Kar, whose National Portrait Gallery collection includes many images of the author. His exploits inspired the classic London novel Absolute Beginners by Colin MacInnes, and a life in which hallucogenic drugs featured large. He spent time in Goa and hung out with William Burroughs in Tangier before spending the 90s running a successful sandwich shop in Rhyl. His 1961 book "Baron's Court, All Change" is about drug dealing and youth culture, and was the first British novel to mention LSD.
