This selection from the first ten years of the Evergreen Review gives the full flavor of the energy, savvy, excitement, and gall that characterized the magazine during the days of its publication. It also happens to bring together some of the world's best writers in one volume, in the company of their peers. Evergreen was more than another literary magazine. Founded by Barney Rossett of Grove Press and publishing from 1957 through 1973 (it now exists as an online only magazine), it was the voice of a movement that helped to change the attitudes and prejudices of the culture at large through the language of art--and succeeded. It was always damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead. Here are original short stories by Samuel Beckett and Jack Kerouac (with his "October in the Railroad Earth" predating the publication of On the Road); Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" (previously published only as a pamphlet); a selection from Lawrence Ferlinghetti's A Coney Island of the Mind; and a passage from Alexander Trocchi's Cain's Book. Also included are a fantastic sample of the original and iconic magazine covers which were works of art themselves--a heavily bearded Ginsberg cavorting in a sport coat and Uncle Sam top hat in 1966--and several reprinted comic strips; notably, Michael O'Donoghue's "The Adventure of Phoebe Zeit-geist."
