Minor Characters: A Beat Memoir by Joyce Johnson
Minor Characters: A Beat Memoir

kt_73, November 12, 2008

I was genuinely pleased to hear a woman's voice coming out of the Beat Generation. So many times readers are so caught up in Kerouac, Ginsberg, Cassady, that they forget entirely about The Woman's contribution to such an interesting movement. Johnson illustrates that women, too, were struggling to find their own places and voices much like their more famous male companions.
