The Story of the Outraged and Outrageous Lives That Launched A Cultural RevolutionBook - 2013
By the time Lucien Carr stabbed David Kammerer to death on the banks of the Hudson River in August 1944, it was clear that the hard-partying teenage companion to Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Neal Cassady, and William S. Burroughs might need to reevaluate his life. A two-year stint in a reformatory straightened out the wayward youth but did little to curb the wild ways of his friends. What is more remarkable than the manic lives they led is that they succeeded-- remaking their own generation and inspiring the ones that followed.
