Abstract:

"From 1950s Greenwich Village artists' lofts and coffee houses to the San Francisco Opera house, from park benches and strolls on the Bowery to the JFK Center in Washington DC, Offbeat is the action-packed true story of the unique friendship and collaborations of composer-performer David Amram and author Jack Kerouac. Amram is your travel guide, taking you along in this account of their adventures from 1956 until Kerouac's death in 1969." "The hilarious making of the now-classic film Pull My Daisy, the historic first jazz/poetry readings ever given in New York, and the symphonic works inspired by Kerouac's participation, are described here for the first time in detail by the man who made the music. Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Langston Hughes, Neal and Carolyn Cassady, Franz Kline, Larry Rivers, and a host of others, are vividly portrayed forging the legend of a generation that lives to this day." "At the same time, Offbeat challenges and dismisses the myth of a Beat Generation, replacing it with a riveting and heartfelt account of the community of artists of that era, and how they supported one another."--BOOK JACKET.
