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.
