A Day in the Life Zusammenfassung

A Day in the Life: One Family, the Beautiful People, and the End of the Sixties Robert Greenfield

From the author of Exile on Main Street comes the decadent, heartbreaking tale of the breakdown of a seemingly idyllic, upper-class marriage, set against the backdrop of the end of the sixties and populated with an unforgettable cast of jet-setting famous and infamous characters.This is the story of how the ideal marriage between two young, rich, and extraordinarily beautiful members of the English upper class degenerated into a hellish nightmare of drugs, decadence, madness, and death during a moment in time when the psychedelic dreams of the sixties were giving way to the harsh realities of the seventies. It is also the stirring account of how their two sons - one of whom is actor Jake Weber, currently co-starring with Patricia Arquette on Medium - somehow managed to survive a childhood that would have destroyed those of lesser spirit.The supporting cast of characters, which plays out against the background of the international jet set circa 1962-1975, includes Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg; Mick and Bianca Jigger; Eric Clapton and Alice Ormsby-Gore; George Harrison and the Beatles; record producer Jimmy Miller and Traffic; actresses Fiona Lewis, Sally Field, and Charlotte Rampling; film directors John Frankenheimer and Lucchino Visconti; antique dealer Chrissie Gibbs; and LSD guru Timothy Leary and Joanna Harcourt-Smith, and many others.
