About the Author

Investigative journalist Dennis McDougal is the author of twelve books, including Dylan: The Biography and Five Easy Decades. A staff writer for two decades with the Los Angeles Times and frequent contributor to the New York Times, McDougal has been honored with more than forty awards, including Stanford University's John S. Knight Fellowship, the Anne Sperber Award for the nation's best media biography, a nomination for the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Award, and the George Foster Peabody Award as co-producer of the 2009 PBS American Experience documentary Inventing L.A. based on McDougal's bestselling Privileged Son.


"Dennis McDougal's lively writing and muckraking journalism sheds new light on the dark underside of the psychedelic renaissance. Operation White Rabbit serves as a cautionary tale of the good trip breaking bad."-- Don Lattin, bestselling author of The Harvard Psychedelic Club.

"No matter how many literary acid trips you have been on, until you read Dennis McDougal's Operation White Rabbit, you are missing the best trip of all. McDougal paints the life and times of Lennie Pickard with rich colors, subtle texture and brilliant insight. McDougal is held in awe by many of his peers because of how diligently and deeply he digs, McDougal always discovers hidden gems of fact that others miss, then polishes them into a marvelously told story."-- David Cay Johnston, bestselling author of The Making of Donald Trump

"What's not to love when learning about Leonard? It's a joy to gaze at the stars of the psychedelic lore: Hubbard and Hoffman, Owsley and Osmond, Scully and Sand, Leary and Ram Dass. But who stands alone, a constellation unto himself? Master shapeshifter among many, the peerless Pickard, larger than life, and then prisoner for life. McDougal has done it again, weaving a tapestry that wraps us in acid and enlightenment, a tale of mischief that morphs into one of hubris before it all comes to a crashing end. Bravo to the biographer!"--Julie Holland, M.D., bestselling author of Weekends at Bellevue: Nine Years on the Night Shift at the Psych ER and Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, the Sleep You're Missing, the Sex You're Not Having, and What's Really Making You Crazy
