AND THE HIPPOS WERE BOILED IN THEIR TANKS

published by Grove Press

LIMITED TO ONE COPY ONLY.

*

In the summer of 1944, a shocking murder rocked the fledgling Beats. William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac, both still unknown, were inspired by the crime to collaborate on a novel, a hard-boiled tale of bohemian New York during World War II, full of drugs and art, obsession and brutality, with scenes and characters drawn from their own lives.

Finally published after more than sixty years, this is a captivating read, and incomparable literary artefact, and a window into the lives and art of two of the twentieth century’s most influential writers.
