Covers Of Beat Books (Boy, I Wish I Had Some of These!)
My interest in the Beats hasn't waned. Due to outside circumstances, a post I planned to do on the role women played in the creative processes of Jack Kerouac & the other Beats has been delayed. I'm currently searching for a copy of Brenda Frazer's reissued post-Beat 1969 novel/memoir Troia as well as reading a collection of essays on female Beats (Girls Who Wore Black: Women Writing The Beat Generation, edited by Ronna C. Johnson & Nancy M. Grace; Rutgers, 2002) so I'll know what I'm talking about.
Meanwhile, to whet the appetites of those interested in the Beats, I'd thought I'd showcase some covers of both pivotal works & various cash-in items. Enjoy!
