From East to West, Upper Bohemia to Lower: Burt Glinn documented 'The Beat Scene'

Featured image—of poets Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso with Grove Press publisher Barney Rosset in Washington Square Park, c. 1957—is reproduced from The Beat Scene, Reel Art Press' highly anticipated collection of mostly previously-unpublished work by Magnum photographer Burt Glinn. Featuring essays by Sarah Stacke and Michael Shulman and Jack Kerouac's glorious "And This is the Beat Nightlife of New York" (the manuscript for which was discovered in Glinn's archive), this invaluable volume includes sections on both the East and West Coast Beats—documenting the wild parties, the jazz clubs, the cafes, private art studios and public exhibitions—as well as a chapter illuminating the role of Upper Bohemians, who "act as a bridge between creative artists and the general public."
