"Grogan was one of the figureheads of the West Coast movement in the mid Sixties and this book – some of which is true – charts his rise to infamy. The Diggers were devoted to genuine egalitarianism and involved themselves in street theatre, direct action and distributing free food. This is their story as much as Grogan’s and is one of the most fascinating books ever written about Sixties counterculture." —New Statesman

“The best and only authentic book written on the sixties underground.” –Dennis Hopper


“Of all those activists, Hopper thought the most interesting was the late Emmett Grogan, who ran the Diggers, a group that gave away food and clothing. Hopper thinks that Grogan's romanticized autobiography, Ringolevio, is the best book dealing with the '60s. The title was a New York street game ‘of life and death.’ ‘Grogan thought that anybody who ever played that game would learn their position in life,’ Hopper said. ‘He was out of New York, studied film making with Antonioni. He was a jewel thief, a heroin addict and then came to San Francisco and started the Diggers. He had a lot of charisma.’” –The San Francisco Chronicle


“Emmett Grogan was a wonderful storyteller, and Ringolevio is a great book.” –Jerry Garcia


“It wouldn’t be surprising if Emmett Grogan–‘60s underground hero, prime mover of the Digger movement in San Francisco–were to come back to life. To know Grogan–a wild phenomenon who made the world his stange and could strut more in a month than Olivier played in a lifetime–was to entertain such possibilities.” –The Boston Globe


“A kind of case study that reappraises the '60s unapologetically but honestly, noting the mistakes and excesses, but also acknowledging some of the things that came from it that we should be proud of. Most people are afraid to admit how much fun it was." –Peter Coyote


Grogan was “the underground superstar of the counterculture, a young man whom everyone who was hip had heard of but whom no one could ever find…Wherever it was happening in the 1960’s, Emmett Grogan was there.” –The New York Times


“This autobiography is at once an amazing example of romantic self-mythologizing and a broad history of the hippie movement of the late nineteen-sixties…Mr. Grogan writes so clearly that he almost convinces us that the whole story could be true.” –The New Yorker


“Grogan…who blends idealism with cold-blooded nastiness, sets forth in this playback not only his own life and times–but also what it means to be on the other side of the barricades, away from the hearth where the bowls aren’t always full…Grogan’s chronicle of his life in the Haight-Ashbury section of San Francisco…is most interesting.” –The New York Times Book Review


“The autobiography of a sometime saint…an astonishing mass of raw experience. It blows myths, settles scores and leaves one pondering the invisible rules by which history and individuals impinge upon one another.” –Life


“Superman of the Underground.” –The Times (London)


“Emmett Grogan is the nom de plume of a youthful author whose autobiography Ringolevio: A Life Played for Keeps will likely cause a stir when it is published.” –Publishers Weekly


A “lengthy, indulgent but intermittently fascinating autobiography of head Digger Emmett Grogan.” –The Washington Post


“The story of the San Francisco Diggers, pioneers of the Haight-Ashbury scene, told engagingly by the head Digger himself.” –The San Francisco Chronicle


“[The San Francisco Diggers] combined Dada street theater with the revolutionary politics of free. Slum-alley saints, they lit up the period by spreading the poetry of love and anarchy with broad strokes of artistic genius. Their free store, communications network of instant offset survival poetry, along with Indian-inspired consciousness, was the original white light of the era. Emmett Grogan was the hippie warrior par excellence. He was also a junkie, a maniac, a gifted actor, a rebel hero, …and above all a pain in the ass to all his friends. Ringolevio [is] half-brilliant.” –Abbie Hoffman


The story of Emmett Grogan, the leader of the San Francisco anarchist collective "The Diggers" in the 60s. It traces his journey from the mean streets of Brooklyn to the summer of love heyday in Haight-Ashbury, where he was constantly organising, protesting and partying. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
Sehr schlaue Sicht auf die amerikanische Subkultur der 60er. Halb Fiktion, halb Autobiographie und viel Spaß. Gott sei Dank wieder aufgelegt, denn dieses Buch kann man heute brauchen. Demnächst erscheint auch das Buch von Peter Coyote. Ebenfalls ein d.igger

Anybody who wants to know anything about the San Fran "hippie" scene of the late 60's has to beg, borrow or steal "Ringolevio." Even if some of it is ***, it's the read of a lifetime. Far better than fiction

4.0 von 5 Sternen Community action 2. Februar 2013
Von Ernie Sullivan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ask a hippie in Boulder who Emmett Grogan is, and they will shrug their shoulders. Sad. It is sad so many leaders of the 60's have been so easily forgotten. I like the Diggers. I love their idea of community action. Instead of protesting Vietnam, they were busy stealing and cooking up free stew for the young masses of the Haight. I also like how the Diggers stuck it to the HIP community exposing them for the capitalist frauds they were. But with Grogan, there was no compromise. I think he only saw things one way... his. Also, for a guy who said he wanted to be behind the scenes, he writes very highly of himself. Ringolevio is highly entertaining. However, I thought Kenny Wisdom/Emmett was going to start walking on water with Jesus by the end.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unkown legend? 28. März 2006
Von Andybuildz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Although Emmett wasn't actually "unknown" I entitled this review as such because most people never even heard of him. I believe he kept more to himself and his people than a jumper into the limelight like so many of that time. I met Emmett down the lower east side of NY in 67 along with the Diggers when they first arrived in NY. Some of the Diggers and myself included ended up on The Allen BurkeTV Show if you remember that. We all showed up but Emmett...instead his replacement was Emma Grogan who I believe was fictional and not his wife but of this I'm still not sure even though I was there. They too (The Diggers) were all Merry Pranksters as well if you ask me. I was a runaway at 16 at the time and this was all new to me but I do have to say he was one character that stuck in my mind for many years before I finally looked into whatever became of him. A heart attack on the NYC subway I believe.

When I looked him up I came across Ringolevio and instantly was captivated by the book. A fantastic read and completely believable, at least to me it was. Maybe not, had I never met him. There are few that enter into a life as jamb packed with adventure as Emmett did and what I love most about him was that he created his own world with wild and well tuned visions brought to life.

I highly recommend this book!

I knew emmmett in the mid 70's. Its a document of those days and his take on it all after a fashion. If you an authentic tale from a person who lived it...here you go....

2.0 von 5 Sternen Polemic to the People! 9. Mai 2012
Von M. Sweeney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A number of people have told me how much they enjoyed this book when it first came out; none of them had re-read it recently to give me an idea how well they thought it had stood up to time.

It almost begs for a sound-byte: Hero/Antihero in the Summer of Love, bearing sorrow having fun...
or something. Emmet Grogan was not a man for sound-bytes however, and his tale goes on and on. I liked the parts where there are glimpses of the streets and the people, what was going on. Unfortunately he can't stop there but provide an overlay of how he sees the true meaning of it, a truth that, oddly enough, revolves around the ego of Emmet Grogan. The further into his story, the more alone he seems to be, the fewer people who hang out with him, listen to him, be a friend.

This could have been an evocative picture of the people and sensibilities of the times, but it's overwhelmed by the Digger loggorhea that Grogan fell in love with and felt compelled to wrap his history in.
