Item description for The Beat of Life by Barbara Probst Solomon...

The Beat of Life, a literary sensation when published, was acclaimed by The New Yorker, Dwight Macdonald, John Braine (Room at the Top), Irving Howe and Colin Wilson, and hailed as "...the most scalding story of precocious love since Devil in the Flesh." A rare record of what the late '50s and '60s felt like to a young woman writer living in New York in the time of the Beats, just before the Women's Movement.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Beat of Life?

The Beat of Life by Barbara Probst Solomon  Oct 14, 2000
James Baldwin was right. This is "an extraordinary piece of work" and Barbara Probst Solomon is "an amazingly gifted writer". This first novel moved me. The couple, Timothy and Natasha just want to make love and be happy, and as Baldwin wrote, regarding Probst Solomon, "she conveys a grim, grim sense of how remarkable, if one's going to survive this desert, one's got to become; she makes us see far better than they ever do, what they lack and what this means...her people are the 'beat' generation, stripped of the dubious protection, the pose, the shrillness, the fake poetry and the fake jazz...and her book is the best thing I can remember reading on the subject." Baldwin put it much better than I could. I simply loved this novel and feel better to have read it.
