    ePUB Harvey Pekar ☆ ☆ The Beats A Graphic History Kindle · Beats A Graphic beats free, graphic download, history mobile, The Beats download, A Graphic pdf, Beats A Graphic pdf, The Beats A Graphic History EpubHarvey Pekar presents a brief introduction to the artistic movement from the mid 20th century known as The Beats focusing on the three major writers of this movement Jack Kerouac William S Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg Pekar also takes a look at some of the minor artists while providing an historical context of this period The best parts of this volume are the appraisals of the lives of KerouacBurroughsGinsberg While I knew something about these writers’ lives already and have read their major works I still learned some things about them I didn't before reading this Kerouac was very conservative despite his reputation for being free wheeling and he was misogynistic homophobic and racist all of which were odd stances as he was bisexual himself and had many Jewish friends Ginsberg for one Burroughs' life was as sordid as I remembered it though I hadn't realised his own son's had be

    ePUB Harvey Pekar ☆ ☆ The Beats A Graphic History Kindle · Beats A Graphic beats free, graphic download, history mobile, The Beats download, A Graphic pdf, Beats A Graphic pdf, The Beats A Graphic History EpubThis book is really GREATIt starts off with the big three of the Beat Generation Jack Kerouac Allen Ginsberg and William S Burroughs but also has plenty of info about other eually important Beat writersI wish there had been about women who were also Beat writers Why are we told explicitly how many kids Diane di Prima birthed but are not given the same statistics about the reproduction of any of the men? There is the awesome Beatnik Chicks section written by Joyce Brabner with art by Summer McClinton which helps tell what our Beat foremothers did That section is totally my favorite part of the bookI was also really surprised and excited by how many of the Beats mentioned in this book identified as anarchists or had at least studied anarchismI'm still convinced that I woul

    ePUB Harvey Pekar ☆ ☆ The Beats A Graphic History Kindle · Beats A Graphic beats free, graphic download, history mobile, The Beats download, A Graphic pdf, Beats A Graphic pdf, The Beats A Graphic History EpubA really bad graphic novel about the lives of the Beats The storytelling is dull dry and pedantic Methinks the Beats would have hated its sterility The level of misogyny is mythic There are a few different contributors but only one or two with any talent it is as though we are supposed to give it all a big “hey OK” because it's about Kerouac spoiled mama’s boy who hated women and Ginsberg et al Yes most of us already knew Burroughs was a waste of air but here he is taking up space oxygen nitrogen Bleh Spit it out creepi did learn the truth about surprise cruel

    ePUB Harvey Pekar ☆ ☆ The Beats A Graphic History Kindle · Beats A Graphic beats free, graphic download, history mobile, The Beats download, A Graphic pdf, Beats A Graphic pdf, The Beats A Graphic History EpubMost of the text is by Harvey Pekar and is nowhere near as interesting as when he wrote about his own life Most of the art is by Ed Piskor and is OK but he's done interesting biographies when he writes the text himself See Hip Hop Family TreeThe male beats were often jerks That is why the story about beatnik chicks is a welcome relief The best thing here for me is that it allowed me to discover whimsical poetillustrator Kenneth Patchen The section about him can be read online here courtesy of the illustrator Nick ThorkelsonOverall not a very recommended read
