If you are a Beat fan and haven't read this, I suggest you ought. Johnson's a very nice writer, but, more important, she applies necessary perspective to a movement that too often steamrollered the women who believed in it, supported it and its male writers (in MANY ways, specifically including financially and emotionally), but weren't supported, encouraged, or promoted themselves.
