Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Despite the revival of interest in Beat Generation writers of the past decade or so, the innovative work of Seymour Krim has, until now, been largely forgotten. This book corrects that situation, collecting eighteen of essays worth of Krim's "Jewish New Journalism," blending fact, fiction, and jazzy prose with a distinctively Jewish sensibility. Originally appearing in the Village Voice, New York magazine, the New York Times and elsewhere between the late 1950s and late 1980s, these essays will be a revelation to those familiar with Beat writings, and likely to many readers who are not. Brief introductions by editor Mark Cohen set each essay into historical and biographical context. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
