The Beat Generation: A Beginner's Guide

by Christopher Gair
£9.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2008)

The Beat Generation: A Beginner The Beat Generation were a revolutionary group of American writers in the late 50s and early 60s who fused an open approach to literature with a bohemian lifestyle. Immortalized through Kerouacís On the Road and Ginsbergís Howl, their relaxed, gritty, and candid writing continues to inspire people of all backgrounds who are drawn to the unconventional.
Chronicling the origins, adventures, and inner workings of the Beat movement, Gair brings to life iconic personalities including Ginsberg, Kerouac, and Burroughs, along with women writers, musicians, and artists on the fringe. Examining their monumental influence upon popular culture from bebop to the Beastie Boys, he proves that their fresh approach has created one of the most revolutionary movements in American literature.
