About the book:

Johnson considers her personal history within the larger framework of the Beat movement and American society. Memories of a conventional Jewish middle-class upbringing and her revolt against it are interwoven with the early experiences of people she would meet later: Jack Kerouac (her boyfriend in the late 1950s), Allen Ginsberg, and others are evaluated with perceptive authority. Johnson's elegant prose is carefully wrought and thoughtfully measured in a way that Beat literature seldom was.
