The Birth of the Beat Generation

Visionaries, Rebels, and Hipsters, 1944-1960

The second volume in the acclaimed series that brings to life the groups of avant-garde writers, artists, and patrons who were keystones of what has come to be called Modernism, this book sheds new light on the hard-living, maverick poets and novelists–William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and others–who coalesced into the Beats. Illustrations.
