I recently wrote an essay for a literary arts publication called Brev Spread out of the Bay Area. The editor had read a blog entry I wrote on my experiences reading the Beats and he asked me if I would be interested in expanding on it. So I decided to incorporate a philosophical account of the Beats from the perspective of their mythology.
The piece is entitled From “It” to the “Void,” Or How We Resurrected the Beat Mythology. I hope that you enjoy it.
