By Jenny Fabian and Johnny Byrne

Fabian and Byrne's story of 19-year-old Katie and her unswerving commitment to sex, drugs & rock 'n' roll now takes its rightful place as a key novel of the Sixties.

When Groupie was first published in 1969 it caused a sensation. The Swingin' Sixties capacity to outrage may have been starting to decline, but this novel managed to shock all over again. A thinly fictionalised chronicle of Jenny Fabian's adventures with underground rock heroes of her day, Groupie caused a furore for all kinds of reasons...

It had the scent of danger that accompanies an authentic original...

It ruffled feathers with its matter of fact descriptions of drug taking and sexual high jinks...

It prompted guessing games about the true identities of its principal characters...

Most of all, it was highly explicit about a phenomenon that had never before been documented...

Decades later, this book is still extraordinarily fresh and playing the celebrity guessing game is still fun. Groupie is also the genuine article - no reconstruction of Sixties underground rock culture has ever captured the Zeitgist as well as this novel.

Includes an introduction by Jonathan Green.
