Pulling back the curtain on the magically mysterious world of the Grateful Dead, Diary of a Deadhead tells one woman's intriguing spiritual adventure following the band. Part memoir, part American history, author Candace D. Carson uses her personal experiences in the turbulent 1960s and '70s to illustrate the larger story of her generation as they grappled with the scars of the Vietnam War.

Like many others, Carson found salvation in the music of the Grateful Dead. The live performances became her church, a place where she could dance her way to joy, wisdom, and oneness in the uniquely intertwined theater where the audience partnered with the band in bringing the music to life. Amid the wild and colorful world of sound and vibration, everyone was connected and everyone was free-even the musicians chose the unrestricted route of improvisation, allowing imperfection to ground the fantasy in an intoxicating reality.

Candidly captivating, Diary of a Deadhead invites you on a voyage to experience the childlike wonder and joy that music can provoke, as well as the healing it can provide.
