Radiacls, Beats and Beboppers

ByJim Burns

This is the second volume of essays by Jim Burns, and like the first it deals mainly with American writers active from around 1930 to 1960 and a little beyond. Among the writers covered are Clifford Odets, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Anatole Broyard, and John Clellon Holmes, together with a variety of left-wing authors and several poets and others associated with the Beat Generation. There are also essays about the abstract-expressionist painters and several jazz musicians. Jim Burns was born in 1936 and has been active as a poet, essayist, reviewer, and little-magazine editor for fifty years. His first collection of essays, Beats, Bohemians and Intellectuals, was published by Trent Books in 1990, and Laying Something Down: Poems 1962-2007 by Shoestring Press in 2007. His most recent volume of poetry is Streetsinger (Shoestring Press. 2010).
