The doors of perception -- Heaven and hell.
In 1953, in the presence of an investigator, Aldous Huxley took four- tenths of a gramme of mescaline, sat down and waited to see what would happen. Huxley described his experience in 'The Doors of Perception' and its sequel 'Heaven and Hell'. This joint volume has a foreword by J.G. Ballard.
