The Beat Generation descended on Denver with the same feverish intensity that rattled the cafés and art galleries of New York and San Francisco. Home to Neal Cassady and favorite stomping ground for both Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, the Mile-High City still pulses with the energy that made it a nerve center for cultural change and a sanctuary for the spoken word community. Author and Beat historian Zack Kopp pairs a narrative history of the movement with a stop-by-stop guide to its Denver landmarks and hot spots.
