A Canadian underground classic, an unredeemedly raw tale of sex, drugs and booze in the life of a Vancouver jazz musician in the early 1960s.

Al Neil’s second and best book, Changes (1975), recalls four of 15 years spent in Vancouver as a junkie and a be-bop musician, from 1958 to 1962. With its many references to sexual experiences, pill-taking, heroin, cheap wine drinking and a graphic description of a visit to the VD clinic, Changes appeals with its scatter-brained but highly lucid frankness. It celebrates life a la Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer, little concerned with literary conventions. Neil approaches writing as a musician improvises a solo.
