The Portable Beat Reader

by Sloth
C'est tres portable!
My copy of this book has been destroyed because I read it so many times it disintegrated into nothing.

I had it with me in London, Paris, Rome, Munich, Frankfurt, Prague, New Orleans, Austin, Mexico City, The Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Duluth, Madison, Chicago, and Philadelphia.

Thank you Ann for the book that is perfect in any location.

The Portable Beat Reader is perhaps the best overview of the Beat generation available. You get coverage of all the major and minor players. When I bought this book I didn't know shit about the Beats. After I read this 650 page tome I was hooked for life.
