Miles, Barry The Beat Hotel: Ginsberg, Burroughs and Corso in Paris, 1957-1963
New York: Grove Press, 2000. First Edition. Hardcover. New/New. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 080211668X The Beat Hotel has been closed for 40 years. But for a brief period from just after the publication of Howl in 1957 until the building was sold in 1963. It was home to Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Brion Gysin, Peter Orlovsky, Harold Norse, and other luminaries of the Beat Generation. A cheap rooming house on the bohemian Left Bank, the hotel was inhabited mostly by writers and artists, and its communal atmosphere spurred the Beats to incredible heights of creativity. Ginsberg's "Kaddish" and "To Aunt Rose", Corso's The Happy Birthday of Death, and Burroughs's Naked Lunch were completed here. Barry Miles biographer of Burroughs, Kerouac, and Ginsberg, and an acquaintance of many of the Beats vividly excavates this period, supplementing a literary history that has tended to be centered on New York and California. "A fine sketch of a bohemian tribe that seems, four mind-bending decades later, refreshingly innocent." NYTBR. (Book ref. 038971) £7.99
