Robert Fraser – taste-maker, hedonist, lousy businessman, promiscuous homosexual – was the celebrated art-dealer responsible for introducing the London art world to Peter Blake, Jim Dine, Richard Hamilton, Bridget Riley and Andy Warhol among others. In this exceptional biography, Harriet Vyner recreates not only an extraordinary, seminal figure but also an exciting and colourful era – 1960s London. Told through the voices of those who knew Fraser best – Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Marianne Faithfull, Kenneth Anger, Dennis Hopper and Vyner herself – Groovy Bob was acclaimed on first publication as a brilliant biography and a portrait of the most exhilarating period in post-war British social history.
