A companion to our guides to San Francisco and New York, Beat Atlas: A Guide to the Beat Generation in America is a state-by-state guide to the rest of the nation’s significant Beat locales. From Jack Kerouac’s Lowell to William Burroughs’ Lawrence, Kansas, to Neal Cassady’s Denver–and everywhere in between–Beat Atlas contains a wealth of historical information subdivided by region and state for easy reference and is illustrated with photographs by Allen Ginsberg. Written by Ginsberg biographer and Beat authority Bill Morgan, and rich with literary lore, Beat Atlas makes an ideal companion for armchair travelers as well as those “on the road.”
