"A Novel of Drug Addicts and Their World." A protocol-beat novel, published the same year as the first beat novel, GO, by John Clellon Holmes. About a young girl runaway to Greenwich Village, starts with the "gateway" drug marijuana, and of course she ends up hooked on horse, as did every pot smoker in those days according to the prevailing conventional wisdom. Characters include "the boy Dincher, playing his golden horn to satisfy a hunger he cannot describe; gentle, lost Lukey the Swede, preaching his philosophy of 'escapology'; menacing, stupid Buster, carving celluloid rings with a terrifying knife; the prostitute Lizzie, searching always for real affection; Izzie the Ghost, trailing terror through the Village in his desperate search for drugs." Mandel was from Coney Island and lived in the Village for five years after the war. This was Mandel's first novel; he went on to publish several more.

Best known for his black & white photos of famous writers, musicians and artists, especially of the beat era. Jack Micheline (1929-1998), born in the Bronx as Harold Martin Silver, was an American painter and poet from the San Francisco Bay area. His name is associated with street artists, underground writers, and "outlaw" poets. He was one of San Francisco's original beat poets and an innovative artist who was active in the San Francisco Renaissance in the 1950s and 60s. He was a street poet in Greenwich Village in the 50s, writing about hookers, addicts, blue collar workers, and the dispossessed. Jack Kerouac wrote the introduction to his first book, published in 1957. He went on to publish over 20 books, chapbooks, and mimeo books. He also did some painting, mostly gouache in a primitive style. A terrific image of one of the lesser known but authentic beats (a term he hated).
