In this lively and unique document 1970s-style hedonism, we follow the further adventures of Cleo Odzer, whose first book, Patpong Sisters, was a Quality Paperback Book Club best seller. Goa Freaks begins in the mid 1970s and tells of Cleo’s love affair with Goa, a resort in India where the Freaks (hippies) of the world converge to partake in a heavy bohemian lifestyle. To finance their astounding appetites for cocaine, heroin, and hashish, the Freaks spend each monsoon season acting as drug couriers, and soon Cleo is running her own scams in Canada, Australia, and the United States. (She even gets her Aunt Sathe in on the action.) With her earnings she builds a veritable palace by the beach—the only Goa house with running water and a flushing toilet Cleo becomes the hostess of Anjuna Beach, holding days-long poker games and movie nights and, as her money begins to run out, transforming the house into a for profit drug den. Tracing Cleo’s love affairs, her stint hiding out at the ashram of the infamous Bhagwan Rajneesh, and her sometimes-harrowing drug expert likes, Goa Freaks: My Hippie years in India is candid and compelling, bringing to life the Spirit of a now-lost era.
