In this book, TOMMY JOE LINTNER presents a collection of pieces he was inspired to write as a result of an intensive study of the Beat Generation, a major counterculture movement in 1950's and early 1960's America. You'll be taken on a journey back to the past when Beatniks, coffee houses, cool poets, hip bebop musicians and dramatic personalities who wanted to change the world reigned supreme, at least within their own world. People who wanted to defy authority, work against the Establishment's rigid rules and regulations and society's hangups got together and made their voices heard. You'll delight with the writings as well as a myriad of vintage photos and illustrations as you turn each new page of this fabulous book. Like, it's cool and hip, Daddy-O!
