The Beat Generation - Albert Zugsmith

"The shocking and revealing novel of a generation gone wild based on the sensational MGM motion picture release"


BANTAM BOOKS 1965
NEW YORK, USA
FIRST PRINTING APRIL 1959

THE BEAT GENERATION
is the searing story of the restless, jaded men and women, with no aim in life except a new sensation-drugs, "way-out" jazz, perverted sex, actual crime.

THE BEAT GENERATION
is especially the story of rich, young Stan Belmont, who had known every thrill. Now his only kick was - rape.

THE BEAT GENERATION
is an MGM release, a spectacular Albert Zugsmith production starring Steve Cochran, Mamie Van Doren, Ray Danton, Fay Spain, Maggie Hayes, Jackie Coogan, and Louis Armstrong  and his All-Stars.

Here's the big novel
of the restless ones who hop from thrill to thrill, the groovy cats who call themselves Beatniks-try anything for kicks but are never satisfied-
THE BEAT GENERATION 
is their story

Of course as the book says this was also a movie, released in 1959 and starring the above stars, there was also a 45 released by Mamie Van Doren with the title track "The Beat Generation", I've included a movie poster and a cover from a Danish 45 issue.
