BeschreibungThis book does not aim to document comprehensively the extraordinarily rich activity in New York City in the early 1960's. Instead, the author focuses on one year, 1963. This was the most productive year of the period 1958-64, the transition between the Fifties and Sixties. The author also focuses on one other place---Greenwich Village in lower Manhattan. For it was primarily here, in a place already historically and culturally mythologized as avant-garde terrain, that the emerging generation of vanguard artists lived, worked, socialized, and remade the history of the avant-garde. - from the Introduction.

Pressestimmen"Sally Banes . . . has provided her readers with a sympathetic yet finely nuanced account of the artistic explorations of this avant-garde and of its attempts to interrogate the norms and values of the dominant culture."
