              A provocative new novel from bestselling author T.C. Boyle exploring the first scientific and recreational forays into LSD and its mind-altering possibilities In this stirring and insightful novel, T.C. Boyle takes us back to the 1960s and to the early days of a drug whose effect...s have reverberated widely throughout our culture: LSD. In 1943, LSD is synthesized in Basel. Two decades later, a coterie of grad students at Harvard are gradually drawn into the inner circle of renowned psychologist and psychedelic drug enthusiast Timothy Leary. Fitzhugh Loney, a psychology Ph.D. student and his wife, Joanie, become entranced by the drug's possibilities such that their research becomes less a matter of clinical trials and academic papers and instead turns into a free-wheeling exploration of mind expansion, group dynamics, and communal living. With his trademark humor and pathos, Boyle moves us through the Loneys' initiation at one of Leary's parties to his notorious summer seminars in Zihuatanejo until the Loneys' eventual expulsion from Harvard and their introduction to a communal arrangement of thirty devotees--students, wives, and children--living together in a sixty-four room mansion and devoting themselves to all kinds of experimentation and questioning. Is LSD a belief system? Does it allow you to see God? Can the Loneys' marriage--or any marriage, for that matter--survive the chaotic and sometimes orgiastic use of psychedelic drugs? Wry, witty, and wise, Outside Looking In is an ideal subject for this American master, and highlights Boyle's acrobatic prose, detailed plots, and big ideas. It's an utterly engaging and occasionally trippy look at the nature of reality, identity, and consciousness, as well as our seemingly infinite capacities for creativity, re-invention, and self-discovery.

              1797. Dans une foret du Languedoc, des chasseurs capturent un garcon errant, nu et hirsute. Qui est-il, cet - enfant sauvage -, aussi depourvu, semble-t-il, d ame et de raison qu une bete ? Apres avoir ete exhibe tel un monstre de foire, il est finalement abandonne a son incurabl...e sauvagerie. Seul le docteur Itard s'entete a croire que de cet - animal - il saura faire un homme. Des annees durant, l'enfant, rebaptise Victor, va subir l'apprentissage de la civilisation sous la ferule de son maitre. Dans ce recit, bref et intense, T. C. Boyle s'empare de la celebre histoire de Victor de l'Aveyron, qui inspira aussi l'un de ses plus beaux films a Francois Truffaut. Inhabituellement bref et emouvant, L Enfant sauvage voit le satiriste enrage se muer en poete et trouver dans l empathie un antidote a sa coutumiere causticite. Bruno Juffin, Les Inrockuptibles.
