Additional Information

Distilled Spirits blends a religion reporter's memoir with the compelling
stories of three men--Aldous Huxley, Gerald Heard, and Bill
Wilson--who transformed the landscape of Western religion and
spirituality in the twentieth century. Huxley, celebrated author of
Brave New World, ignited a generation that chased utopian dreams
and sought enlightenment through psychedelic drugs. Heard, an
Anglo-Irish mystic, journeyed to California with Huxley in the 1930s
to lay the foundations for the New Age and human potential
movements. Wilson, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, joined
forces with Huxley and Heard in the 1940s and 1950s, when Wilson
began a series of little-known experiments to see if LSD could be used
to help diehard drunks.

Their life stories are gracefully brought together by veteran journalist
Don Lattin. Lattin recounts his own rocky personal journey from
1960s and 1970s counter-culture, through the fast-living, cocaine-fueled
1980s and 1990s, to his long struggle to get sober. By weaving
an intimate account of his own recovery with the lives of the book's
three central characters, Lattin shows us the redemptive power of story
telling, the strength of fellowship, and the power of living more
compassionately, one day at a time.
