"Nick Drake: Remembered for a While is not so much a memoir or biography as a compendium of a life, curated by his loving sister, the actor Gabrielle Drake. In essays, reminiscences and accounts, childhood friends, musicians, producers, college pals and others excavate their relationships with her brother. What emerges from the disaffected haze of postbeatnik hippiedom is the clear ambition of a postwar generation the 20th century's first young British men who did not have to go off to war and a poetic vision of youth" (Fleming).
