Description

The intoxicating buzz of the Sixties: fashion, theatre, film, and above all the great pop music, pulsing through the Soho clubs and Chelsea coffee bars. In his DIARY OF A TEDDY BOY, Mim Scala leads us on a hedonistic and richly humorous adventure, following Mim from his humble origins as an ice-cream salesman to gambler, agent, record producer and hippie traveller. Quintessentially of its time and ours, Mim Scala's memoir conveys like few others what it was like to experience, and to propel, the most pivotal decade of the twentieth century.show more
