The Girl with a Peppermint Taste Set in the London of the mid ‘60s, with anti-nuclear marches, flower power and rebellious pop concerts as backdrop, the story concerns a respectable middle aged company director who falls hopelessly in love with an uninhibited, sexy, disrespectful but very bright East End hippy. As he mixes with her friends - student politicians, revolutionaries and madcap musicians, whose behaviour and language shock him profoundly - his values and judgements are turned inside out and upside down till he abandons the security of his family and business for the wild freedom of a very different way of life. It is an insight into the break up of the different British class values which ruled people’s lives at the time and led to what became known as the ‘permissive society’. When first released this book was serialised in the Sun newspaper in the UK and was a bestseller in hardback and paperback both in the UK and USA

This book was deemed daring at the time of publishing because it contained a few F words, how times have changed!From the Inside Flap:
He put his books in the refrigerator.
An even number of paperbacks fitted neatly in the ice compartment, which was pleasing, the rest he arranged on the racks below.
He took the food upstairs to the bathroom and put it all in the bath, including the ice cubes and the numbered eggs.
He then found Jane's lipstick and wrote 'Up Dryden' on the bedroom wall in large letters. That was his idea.
He left the house by the garden door, crossed the lawn, the paddock, ducked through the fence, crossed the field to the lane, walked briskly to the station and took the next train that came along.

Diane had said it would be easy, and it had been.
"You done it then?" she said when she opened the door.
"Yes I have."
"Fuck me, I never thought you would."
He hadn't expected that.
"He's done it."
"What did you do then man, just walk out?"
"More or less." He was shy about it. Funny.
"Was she there?"
"No. No-one was there. I just did what you all said I should do."
"What, the books in the fridge?" Mick couldn't believe it.
"Wow man, you really have a nerve man. Christ I never could have done that."
