I'm looking forward to hearing what the Timothy Leary scholars have to say, but this seems like it would be important: Timothy Leary's lover for much of the 1970s, Joanna Harcourt-Smith, has published a book about Leary, Tripping the Bardo with Timothy Leary: My Psychedelic Love Story.
Here is the Amazon blurb: "Tripping the Bardo with Timothy Leary is a scathingly honest and
breathless autobiographical memoir by Joanna Harcourt-Smith, the British
Jet-Set "hippie heiress" scapegoat for Timothy Leary, the Harvard
psychologist "Pied Piper" of the Sixties generation. Between 1972 and
1977, Joanna was his lover and voice to the outside world while he was
in prison for three-and-a-half of those years. Tripping the Bardo is a
missing piece of the Sixties puzzle. Joanna Harcourt-Smith knows. As an
eyewitness, she was right at the heart of it. From the Rolling Stones
and Andy Warhol to the relentless FBI harassment of the political Left,
Tripping the Bardo moves at the fast pace of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll
that the Sixties were known for. The author's voice is that of a
spoiled and damaged socialite but with an unrelenting sense of humor and
ability to bring to life an outrageous set of characters – aristocrats
and drug dealers, rockers and poets, crime lords and double agents. As
Hermann Hesse said: I'm beginning to hear the teachings of my blood
pulsing within me. My story isn't pleasant, it's not sweet and
harmonious like invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment,
of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to
lie to themselves."
