Overview

In 1923 three men were brought together by mutual friend Herbert Huncke to form the most potent underground art phenomenon of postwar America and together invent the notion of a counter-culture. Against a prevailing mood of paranoia and uncertainty, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, and Allen Ginsberg would create a movement to explore the capacity for joy and liberation which lay unexplored in the collective psyche. Through their own reminiscences and testimonials of friends, lovers, and fellow artists, they draw a profile of events that changed the way we experience popular culture. Contributors voices include Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Herbert Huncke, Lucien Carr, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ed Sanders, Anne Waldman, Peter Orlovski, Philip Glass, Patti Smith, Mortimer Burroughs, and many others.
