This is the biography of the famed twentieth-century psychic, Eileen J. Garrett, written by her long-time colleague and friend Allan Angoff. Spanning an association of over twenty-five years, Angoff tells both the public and private story of a remarkable woman with psychic gifts. These gifts led her from a young girl in Ireland grappling with the burden of psychic visions, to the global stage and the founding of the Parapsychology Foundation in l951, a worldwide forum supporting scientific exploration of psychic phenomena. This is an absorbing account of her work and associations with many international notables, including, Aldous Huxley, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Dr. J.B. Rhine, as she sought to make sense of psychic functioning for herself and humankind. Eileen Garrett was a woman ahead of her time and comfortable in a world beyond the senses.
