"London, 1958. In the smoky jazz clubs of Soho and the coffee bars of Notting Hill, the young and the restless--the absolute beginners--are revoutionising youth culture and forging a new carefree lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll. Moving in the midst of this world of mods and rockers, Teddy gangs and trads, and snapping every scene with his trusty Rolleiflex, is MacInnes's young photographer, whose unique wit and honest views remain the definitive account of London life in the 1950s and what it means to be a teenager."--Page 4 of cover
