"What is it that imbues the Beats with such a mystical aura of glamour, and causes their lives, as much as their books, to be regarded as the sacred texts of a particular school of non-conformism? These are the questions that James Campbell has addressed in this brilliantly sympathetic and compelling analysis of the Beat phenomenon."
