Description
Did you know that just a few weeks after the German 6th Army surrendered at Stalingrad, Jack Kerouac reported to the Newport, Rhode Island, U.S. Naval Training Station, served only eight days on active duty, and was discharged three months later, diagnosed with a "Constitutional Psychopathic State, Schizoid Personality"? Or that in the same year, 1943, William Burroughs moved from Chicago to New York City, where he took a small apartment at 69 Bedford Street and began a heroin addiction that was to last until 1956? Or that Gregory Corso, 13 and homeless, was arrested for petty larceny, and Allen Ginsberg, a new graduate from Eastside High School in Patterson, New Jersey, began his first semester at Columbia University, where he would later meet Kerouac? Packed with such anecdotes, this meticulous timeline details the life events and literary accomplishments of the writers who became known as the Beat generation, illustrated with black and white portraits and ephemera throughout.
