Robert Fraser, better known to some as "Groovy Bob", was immortalized in Richard Hamilton's 1967 picture "Swinging London", handcuffed to Mick Jagger. This unconventional biography details the riotous life of the man that Paul McCartney said "personifies the Sixties as I remember them".
Robert Fraser - taste-maker, hedonist, lousy businessman, promiscuous homosexual - was the celebrated art-dealer responsible for introducing the London art world to Peter Blake, Jim Dine, Richard Hamilton, Bridget Riley and Andy Warncl among others. In this exceptional biography, Harriet Vyner recreates not only an extraordinary, seminal figure but also an exciting and colourful era - Sixties London. Told through the voices of those who knew Fraser best - Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Marianne Faithfull, Kenneth Anger, Dennis Hopper and Vyner herself - Groovy Bob was acclaimed on first publication as a brilliant biography and portrait of the most exhilarating period in British social history.
