Aldous Huxley – The Doors of Perception

 

The Doors of Perception is an obvious classic, the immortal memoirs that Huxley kept while experimenting with mescaline, a drug which causes similar effects to magic mushrooms and LSD. It’s an academic take on a mischievous activity, an approach which influenced the gonzo style of journalism that Hunter S. Thompson would later become famed for.

Heaven and Hell, meanwhile, is Huxley’s sequel to the initial essay, not quite as powerful perhaps, but a decent addendum that serves to add some context to what it is that you’re reading. Combined, the two are mindblowing.
