Like its acclaimed companions, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry and The Outlaw Bible of American Literature, this volume is a primer for generational revolt and an enduring document of the visionary tradition of authenticity and nonconformity. Gathered here for the first time are incendiaries who rail against the betrayed American dream; fight for the politics of personal and artistic freedom, sexual daring, and racial and gender equality; offer everday protests of a capitalist police state; and expose themes of violence, restlessness, and death. William S. Burroughs, Eldridge Cleaver, Iceberg Slim, Hubert Selby Jr., Eileen Myles, Allen Ginsberg, Annie Sprinkle, Ben Fong-Torres, Miriam Makeba, Sparrow, Tennessee Williams, Susie Bright, Brenda Knight, Sue Coe, Fly, and dozens of others create a raucous eruption of language and an inspired showcase of unsparing inquiry and revolt.
