Joys and Perplexities book. The title is apt, as Harrison, who passed away in 2003, took delight in love, friendship, music, writing, travel, and classical study, but was deeply disturbed by the pollution of nature and governments' preparations for nuclear war. As in his musical compositions, the joys far outweigh the perplexities.
