Reader's note

Bold in its choice of presentation of cover with a monochrome photograph and stark yellow writing that contrasts; and even bolder in its statement. This masterly anthology presents the most vital and controversial writers on the American scene. It features raw, penetrating stories, poetry and social criticism from the likes of Jack Kerouac, Norman Mailer, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and a great many more! Here is a ruthlessly honest collection of their writing together with some sharp critical assessments of their deliberate sensationalism and their crusade against society. If you're familiar with the beatnik generation or not, this collection is more than worthy of a special place on your vintage bookshelf.
