Beats at Naropa
Beats at Naropa

Amassed from the riches of the Naropa University audio files, this collection offers an exciting new look at the Beats—whose influence lives on in the arts and politics of our time. In this often spontaneous, in-their-own-words oral history of America’s most provocative and prescient thinkers, readers are introduced to the hard truths behind being a Beat woman, the haunting accuracy of William Burroughs’ worldview, the passion and energy of Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman, the unexpected influence of Jack Kerouac’s musicality, Michael McClure’s account of the famous first reading of “Howl,” and, most of all, the incredible inspiration that the lives and work of these cultural icons continues to provide.
