    I found this book wandering my high school library when I was a kid. It was my first exposure to Beat anything and I loved it. It's the reason my armpits are hairy and I don't trust government.

    A fantastic short anthology with Diane di Prima, Gregory Corso, Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Michael McClure, and others. The introduction is an excellent overview of the times.
