Audible Editor Reviews

One of the original youth subcultures, the Beat Generation of the post-World War II era had a huge effect on all the alternative culture that followed. In this enthusiastic and comprehensive overview from Senior Lecturer in American Literature at the University of Glasgow, Christopher Gair, listeners are immersed in the world of the Beats. The velvety reading from voice performer Adrian Mulraney easily evokes the alternative café culture of greats like Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and of course, Jack Kerouac, whose classic novel On the Road invited mass public interest to this once-underground culture. Entertaining and engrossing, this audiobook will charm listeners interested in the Beats and their cultural legacy.

Publisher's Summary

The Beat Generation was a revolutionary group of American writers in the late 50s and early 60s who fused an open approach to literature with a bohemian lifestyle. Immortalised through Kerouac’s On the Road and Ginsberg’s Howl, their relaxed, gritty, and candid writing continues to inspire anyone drawn to the unconventional. Chronicling the origins, adventures, and inner workings of the Beat movement, Gair brings to life iconic personalities including Ginsberg, Kerouac, and Burroughs, and examines their monumental influence upon popular culture from bebop to the Beastie Boys.
