The critically acclaimed novelist and social critic Aldous Huxley describes his personal experimentation with the drug mescaline and explores the nature of visionary experience. The title of this classic comes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: "If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."

A master of communication describes his experience with and ideas about mescaline. This classic, like others of this literary period, is good when read aloud. The reader takes good care of it for a very fine experience. Worth a couple of hours of your time.
