Reseña del editor:

Beginning in New York in 1944 James Campbell finds the leading members of what was to become the Beat Generation in the shadows of madness and criminality. Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs had all seen the inside of mental hospitals and prisons by the age of 30. A few months after they met, another member of their circle committed a murder which involved Kerouac and Burroughs as material witnesses. This book charts the transformation of these experiences into literature and a literary movement that spread across the globe. From 'The First Cut-Up' - the murder in New York in 1944 - we end up in Paris in 1960 with William Burroughs at the Beat Hotel, experimenting with the technique that made him notorious, what Campbell calls 'The Final Cut-Up'. In between we discover San Fransisco, where Ginsberg gave the first public reading of HOWL; Burroughs in Mexico City and Tangiers; the French background to the Beats; the Buddhist influence on Kerouac, Gary Snyder and others; the 'Muses' Herbert Huncke and Neal Cassady; the torturous history of ON THE ROAD, and the black ancestry of the white hipster.
