The Beat generation an American dream( Visual )

3 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1950s a small group of writers and painters gathered in the Bohemian quarters of New York and San Francisco. They voiced their concerns over America's post WWII euphoria in a manner so raucous and colorful that the media took note and dubbed them the Beat Generation. This film portrait of this volatile period of American culture is illuminated perfectly through rare archival footage and interviews with those who lived through and influenced the era

Jack Kerouac( Visual )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Kerouac, cult writer of the Beat generation, remains an American icon. This documentary focuses on the creative pinnacle of his life-63 days spent as a fire warden on Desolation Peak in Washington State. Examining the time through photos and the commentary of those who knew him, the program illuminates Kerouac's previous work, while prefiguring his later spiral into alcoholism. This is a moving film essay on the unfulfilled ambitions of one of America's great avant-garde literary figures

Off the road : my years with Cassady, Kerouac, and Ginsberg by Carolyn Cassady( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and Turkish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Off the Road tells the intimate story of the legendary Neal Cassady and his remarkable friendships with Jack Kerouac (who immortalized Cassady as Dean Moriarty in On the Road) and Allen Ginsberg. Written by the woman who loved them all--as wife of Cassady, lover of Kerouac, and friend of Ginsberg--this riveting and intimate memoir spans one of the most vital eras in twentieth-century literature and culture, including the explosive successes of Kerouac's On the Road and Ginsberg's Howl, the flowering of the Beat movement, and the social revolution of the 1960s. Carolyn Cassady reveals a side of Neal Cassady rarely seen-that of husband and father, a man who craved respectability, yet could not resist the thrills of a wilder and ultimately more destructive lifestyle
