Thank you Hugo!
I will be awaiting a chance to read her book. I cannot find it available yet, but I won't give up easy. ;-)

Thanks for the link Hugo. As it happens I was due to see Polly launch her book in Manchester today with a little help from her friend Dave Gilmour. I will now have to wait a little longer though the organisers promise the book and a signed photo will be posted out soon.

Vickie - the book is due to be published this week, on April 2. Of course coronavirus might impact on that too. It’s available for preorder at Amazon.

Thanks, Hugo, for steering us to this interesting article. Feeding one's troubled child LSD at age 15 was criminal, poor Axel Jr.

This report from Polly was mistaken. I personally visited with Axel and Marianne in Oslo from Dec. 26, 1975 until Jan 10,1976 (one week before his 16th birthday) and Axel was fine mentally and had not yet been to India. He did travel to India when he was 17 (alone - not with his father) and spent a lot of time and took a lot of drugs with friends in Goa. When he returned to Norway his mental state was deteriorating and at the age of 20 he was voluntarily institutionalized.
