The Beats: A Graphic History

The Beats: A Graphic History

by Paul Buhle, Harvey Pekar and Ed Piskor

The Beats: A Graphic History paints a stark image of the Beat movement in all its vibrant glory. With the collaboration of several writers and artists, including Harvey Pekar, Ed Piskor, Trina Robbins, and Peter Kuper, this graphic novel is as wild a ride as the Beat writers' journey through experimentation, non-conformity, and addictions in a time where conservatism was upheld in mainstream culture.
