Description
Reproducing such original contributions as stories by Samuel Beckett and Jack Kerouac (whose "October in the Railroad Earth" here predates the publication of On the Road), this collection from Barney Rossett's Evergreen Review gives the full flavor of the energy, savvy, and gall that characterized the magazine's groundbreaking first decade. Among the more than 80 pieces here are Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" (previously published—and confiscated—only as a pamphlet); selections from Pauline Réage's Story of O and Chester Himes' Pinktoes, and an episode of Michael O'Donoghue and Frank Springer's Phoebe Zeit-Geist comic strip in black and white, along with images of the magazine's often notorious covers.

"A rich selection of articles, stories, book extracts, poems, plays, cartoons, and covers from the first decade of America's premier avant-garde magazine of the 50s and 60s.... Numerous items (including the marvelous covers—e.g., the classic one from 1966 of a heavily bearded Ginsberg cavorting in a sport coat and Uncle Sam top hat ...) are here saved from oblivion. To see them all together is not only to take a stimulating walk down Memory Lane but to remember how much influence and prophetic insight a daring literary magazine with high standards can have."—Kirkus Reviews
