The Beat Generation in San Francisco: A Literary Tour

by

The Beat Generation in San Francisco: A Literary Tour Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A blow-by-blow unearthing of the places where the Beat writers first came to full bloom: the flat where Ginsberg wrote "Howl;" Gary Snyder’s zen cottage in Berkeley; the ghostly railroad yards where Kerouac and -Cassady toiled; the pads where Jack and Neal and Carolyn lived; Ferlinghetti’s favorite haunts. This meticulous guide also brings to light never-before-heard stories about Corso, Bob Kaufman, DiPrima, Kyger, Lamantia and other West Coast Beats. A entertaining read as well as a practical walking (and driving) tour that covers the entire Bay Area. With an introduction by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

Bill Morgan is a painter and archival consultant working in New York City. He is the author of The Beat Generation in New York: A Walking Tour of Jack Kerouac’s City.

Review:

“For travellers who wish to drive and walk the paths of the Beats and Bohemians; San Francisco is your destination and your luggage is this book . . . and the obligatory packet of cigarettes of course as every Beat loves a good smoke or two.” — Book Spew
