Naked angels : Kerouac, Ginsberg, Burroughs by John Tytell( Book )

14 editions published between 1976 and 2006 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Back Cover: Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William S Burroughs-their emergence in the late 1950s as the leading figures of the Beat movement marked one of the most spectacular developments in post-World War II American literature. John Tytell's classic study examines their attempt to redefine a complacent society's notion of sanity and normalcy and to reinvent their own lives through jazz, drugs, and law-breaking, acts that ultimately led to new forms of expression. A fascinating blend of literary and social criticism, history, and biography, Naked Angels is an indispensable introduction to the lives and work of these seminal figures, and an unsurpassed look at the powerful influence they had on the 1960s and beyond
