About this title


A collection of the full text of master storyteller Herbert Huncke's long out-of-print classics features excerpts from his autobiography and a wide selection from unpublished letters and diaries.

About the Author:

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.
