Biography's Source:

Alexander Trocchi (1925-1984). Born in Glasgow, by the time of his death he had cut a colorful swath through many of the important cultural movements in both Europe and America. A controversial figure, described variously as junkie, pimp, outsider, Scottish beat, literary outlaw, visionary, philosopher, underground organizer, and antique book dealer, Trocchi rubbed shoulders with many of the great names of modern literature. Allen Ginsberg, Samuel Beckett, William Burroughs, Eugene Ionesco, Norman Maile, Jean Genet, Timothy Leary, R. D. Laing, and many others fell into his orbit of influence.
