San Francisco, CA: Foundation for National Progress, 1983. First Printing. Staplebound. "If Playboy (magazine) resisted marriage, the short-lived apotheosis of the male rebellion, the Beat, rejected both job and marriage. In the Beat, two strands of male protest- one directed against the white-collar work world and the other against the suburbanized family life that work was supposed to support- come together in the first all-out critique of American consumer culture." from Barbara Ehrenreich's "The Male Revolt," pg. 28) This number of the venerable alternative magazine features the "first in a series of articles on love in the eighties," titled "The Male Revolt" by Barbara Ehrenreich, the well-known "myth-busting" feminist writer. Much of the article discusses the Beat Generation, particularly two of its iconic co-founders, Allen Ginsberg & Jack Kerouac. Interestingly, Playboy's Hugh Hefner is sighted as an antagonist of the Beats. With vintage photographs of Ginsberg, Kerouac & co. Also an interview with television news anchor Tom Brokaw conducted by Frank Browning; a short story ("Graffiti" from the then-forthcoming book, We Love Glenda So Much and Other Tales) by famed Argentine writer Julio Cortazar (1914-1984) & much more.
