At the beginning of the sixties Barry Miles was at art school in Cheltenham; at the end he was running the Beatles' Apple label and living in New York's legendary Chelsea Hotel. This is the story of what happened in between. In the Sixties is a memoir by one of the key figures of the British counterculture. A friend of Ginsberg and William Burroughs.

Barry Miles spent the 1960s hanging out with beat poets and rock icons. Miles blows bubbles, not whistles, and In the Sixties is a strange little bubble of a book - flimsy, but surrounded with oily psychedelic flavour. Ian Penman reads his diaries, In the Sixties. But under Miles's amiable self-portrait of the archivist as loon-panted Zelig, there's a ribbon of tensile steel: you sense that while other people were shooting up and freaking out, Miles had his head in some double-entry book keeping. In the 1970s other people ended up broke, bummed, boracic. At the end of the 1960s, Miles has a flat in Lord North Street, and a fat Rolodex of contacts. He networked before the fact.

In the Sixties ended with Miles "tired, stressed", his groundbreaking .

In the Sixties ended with Miles "tired, stressed", his groundbreaking Indica Bookshop insolvent, despite the efforts of Paul McCartney, and International Times falling apart. Ten years have passed since Barry Miles took us back to the 1960s, and that moment, somewhere around the Beatles' first LP, when the dull grey Fifties gave way to an era of Technicolor. Since then there have been books on Frank Zappa and a countercultural history of London, adding to a backlist that includes Burroughs and the Beatles. Miles was an assiduous note-maker and each of his books could be said to employ a version of his friend Burroughs's "cut-up" technique.

In April 1966, Barry Miles and John Hopkins, launched International Times preceding the launch of Oz Magazine in 1967, a year that became known as the Summer of Love. 50 years on and Barry Miles, alongside curator and friend James Birch, is set to release The British Underground Press of the Sixties – a catalogue displaying every cover of every British underground paper from that decade, out 5 October. The British Underground Press of the Sixties will be accompanied by an exhibition at A22 Gallery and is a project the pair having been planning for a long time, after meeting 30 years ago.

Since those palmy days, Barry Miles has transformed himself into a notable biographer of his famous friends: William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Paul McCartney. Now Miles the biographer has turned Miles the autobiographer: the courtier has stepped out of the shadows. Since the world at large is hardly panting for yet another memoir.
