Beatdom 16 is the MONEY issue of Beatdom.
Beatdom 16 is the MONEY issue of Beatdom, in which we look at the fictional origins of the Burroughs Millions, or rather, the trust fund that supposedly kept William S. Burroughs wealthy enough to live a life of luxury. Beyond this, we look at the childhood of Herbert Huncke, in a piece written by Hilary Holladay, and reconsider the writing styles of Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. We also have essays on the lives and work of Hettie Jones and Bonnie Bremser, as well as reconsidering Kerouac’s novels as early New Journalism, rather than fiction. In addition to these excellent essays, we have several short stories and Beat book reviews.
