Herbert Huncke

Gave Beat to the Beat Generation
Huncke gave the word “Beat” to the Beat Generation and appeared in major works by pals like Allen Ginsberg, Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac. It is for his own writing, however, that he deserves to be remembered. This image came together when Joe Ambrose was filming a conversation between Huncke and Spencer Kansa.
