About the book:

The underground press of the '60s, the object of veteran journalist Abe Peck's fine book, both chronicled and precipitated some of the era's weirder moments. Peck traces the underground's origins to, strangely enough, Mad magazine, and he goes on to document the fortunes of papers such as the Los Angeles Free Press and The East Village Other, which offered as serious commentary such statements as, "Lyndon Baines is squirting the best blood of America into a creep scene." Peck draws on extensive interviews with writers, readers, and publishers of the underground press, out of which came some of today's most notable newspapers and magazines, among them Village Voice and Rolling Stone.
