Praise

“The Beats, that is, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Diane di Prima, and Michael McClure, to name a core group, are finally being accorded the attention they deserve; they constituted, after all, a major, lastingly influential arts movement. . . . The fact that Waldman’s book is of such high quality is no surprise; a poet herself, she cofounded the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics in Boulder, Colorado.”—Booklist
