An exceptional look at late 50's Venice Beach, California and the group of so-called "Beats" returning to simple pleasures and fighting gentrification and Disneyfication through the arts and even a bit of apathy. Original DJ exhibits a bit of wear at edges. Original price of $5.00 intact on front flap. A much nicer copy than usually encountered.
