Description: NBCC Award-winner Carol Brightman draws the reader inside the Grateful Dead drama, recapturing the Dead's long-running romance with chaos and the unexpected, vividly re-creating the '60s cauldron from which the group emerged, exploring the role of LSD in opening up a new universal consciousness, following the development of a massive Grateful Dead community (still alive and well after Jerry Garcia's death), and bringing a new focus to Garcia himself as those close to him talk about his contradictions, demons, addiction, and vision. Throughout, Brightman contrasts the Dead's safe haven to the political and social cataclysms, particularly Vietnam, surrounding it.

Reminiscent of Hunter S. Thompson or Tom Wolfe, Sweet Chaos breaks out of the music ghetto, where other Dead books are positioned, to speak to everyone interested in the cultural and spiritual hungers in American society yesterday and today.
