In honest, lucid fictional prose designed to capture the events, emotions, and essence of his experience among the Beats, Holmes describes an individualistic post-World War II New York where crime is celebrated, writing is revered, and parties, booze, discussions, drugs, and sex punctuate life.

The most tentative and conservative of the Beats, Holmes's intelligent and sensitive voice also details the pressures and regrets that his lifestyle gave birth to. With portraits of Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Neil Cassady, William Burroughs, this first novel about the Beat Generation gives us a peek into what it meant to be a Beat before the term had ever been used. You did the honest thing, the big thing, the good thing.

John Clellon Holmes, a sometime-member of the crowd of friends that would become famous as the Beat Generation , wrote the first published works to herald their significance. Less controversial and experimental than Jack Kerouac or Allen Ginsberg , Holmes had the sensitivity to realize that their confused values and poignant ambitions were symbolic of something outside their small universe, and he published a novel, Go , which presented characters based on Kerouac, Ginsberg and Neal Cassady in , five years before Kerouac would turn the same cast of characters into legends with On The Road. Holmes was born on March 12, in Holyoke, Massachusetts and gravitated as a young man towards the literary social circles of New York City. He met Jack Kerouac at a party when both were young unknowns, and they struck up a strong friendship on the basis of their interest in writing.
