Herbert Huncke was the original Beat. In the 1940s, Huncke befriended the young William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg, guiding them through New York's underground and introducing them to a world of volatile experience they had never imagined. His ability to relate his life story in pared-down, unaffected prose inspired them to create a new type of literature.
Herbert Huncke was born in 1915, in Greenfield, Massachusetts. He died in New York City on August 8, 1996.From Library Journal:
Petty thief, drug addict, and Times Square hustler, Huncke (Guilty of Everything, LJ 4/1/90) led the writers of the Beat Generation from the rarefied halls of Columbia University to an exciting world of sex, drugs, and crime. He appears as a character in several Beat works including Jack Kerouac's On the Road, Allen Ginsberg's Howl, and William Burroughs's Junkie. Huncke lacked in formal education but was nonetheless charming and articulate, a gifted storyteller. Encouraged by Ginsberg and others, he published several books, including Huncke's Journal (1965) and The Evening Sun Turned Crimson (1980). This posthumously published collection reprints these two titles, long unavailable, and includes excerpts from Huncke's autobiography, as well as previously unpublished stories and letters. Highly recommended for all literature collections.?William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
