Jerry Garcia, of the famous band The Grateful Dead, calls this 'A chronicle of dubiously acquired personal history.' He also drew the colorful illustrations. He states that he wrote this book as 'auto-apocrypha, full of my anecdoubts. Like things to do with my relatives, my family, the block I grew up on, the things that scared me (animals), the discovery of fire, you know, things like that . . . . I write out the text longhand, but my drawings, which illustrate my text, I do on computer . . . . The look is so unique -- it doesn t look like anything else I have ever seen!!!'
