THE OPOQUE OF WRITER AND JOURNALIST AND BOHEMIAN PETER KINSLEY.












































































If you are a fan of the magic island of Ibiza or an old Ibiza visitor of the 1960s or 1970s, you must be familiar with writer and bohemian Peter Kinsley. Writer of one of the best books ever written on Ibiza and its bohemians, writers,artists, special people and other famous characters. O.K. Peter doesnt mention everybody and there are lots of characters missing but, the book makes you relive the good old days and in

great detail!...You must love all those bar scenes and people with their strange stories and backgrounds! Peter Kinsley (Also an old friend of Steve Seley) has written several brillant books (Which includes the character of Seley) If you like to read about good old Ibiza and want to know how it was? You have to read kinsleys's book 'BOGGED DOWN IN COUNTY LYRIC' which you can (still) order on the web. Peter Kinsley is a member of our Hall of Fame of Ibiza and the T.I.C.

It was William Somerset Maugham who advised Peter to go to Spain, saying; That is the country where you will find the most amazing stories. It was in Ibiza that Peter met Tristan Jones and sailed with him. Jones wrote 17 books about the sea. Peter also met Clifford Irving another writer who brought lots of publicity to the white island.
