Review "This guide is packed with photographs and anecdotes that take you to the places where the Beats lived and loved and wrote books that changed American literature and culture. Based on in-depth interviews, it chronicles the West Coast Beat experience beginning in the late forties, when they first set foot in the City."--BOOK JACKET
