Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Here is an unusually diverse collection of Beat voices, including not only Kerouac, Burroughs, and Ginsberg, but Amiri Baraka, Gregory Corso, Diane di Prima, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Joanne Kyger, Michael McClure, Peter Orlovsky, Gary Snyder, and Philip Whalen. Also included are short biographies of the writers and a "Literary Guide to Beat Places" around the world.
Amazon.com Review
A selection of the most exemplary poetry and prose of the Beat writers and writers influenced by the Beat Generation, and visits to high-points "on the Beaten path," such as Kerouac's hometown, and Tangiers, where William S. Burroughs wrote portions of Naked Lunch.
