Synopsis

From its first issue in 1957 to its final in 1973, Evergreen Review was hailed as one of the most provocative magazines ever. The bible for a generation of radicals and freethinkers, Evergreen championed Beckett and Brautigan, erotica and liberal activism, with an in-your-face attitude that confronted and challenged the conventions of the day. Edited by Evergreen's founder and publisher, Barney Rosset, this selection represents the best of the magazine's final years - 1967 through 1973 - a politically and socially tumultuous time that included such pivotal events as the assassinations of Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, and Che Guevara, the Democratic Convention in Chicago, and the massacre at Mylai. Complete with 100 photographs from the original magazine, Evergreen Review Reader has the historical relevance and literary muscle to speak to a new generation.
