    Jack Kerouac Gregory Corso and William Burroughs but also the relentless notoriety that followed his publication of Howl the epic work that branded him the voice of a generation Drawing from extensive research in India undiscovered letters journals and memoirs acclaimed biographer Deborah Baker has woven a many layered literary mystery out of Ginsberg s odyssey A Blue Hand follows him and his companions as they travel from the ashrams of the Himalayan foothills to Delhi opium dens and the burning pyres of Benares They encounter an India of charlatans and saints a country of spectacular beauty and spiritual promise and of devastating poverty and political unease In Calcutta Ginsberg discovers a circle of hungry young writers whose outrageousness and genius are uncannily reminiscent of his own past Finally Ginsberg searches for Hope Savage the mysterious and beautiful girl whose path before she disappeared had crossed his own in Greenwich Village San Francisco and Paris In their restless comic and oftimes tortured search for meaning the Beats looked to India for answers while India looked to the West A Blue Hand is the story of their search for God for love and for peace in the shadow of the atomic

  • Deborah Baker - Books - The Convert
    acclaimed biographer Deborah Baker on her own odyssey into the labyrinthine heart of 20th century Islam Casting a shadow over these letters is the enigmatic figure of Mawlana Abul Ala Mawdudi both Maryam s adoptive father and mentor and the man who laid the intellectual foundations for militant political Islam As she assembles the pieces of a singularly perplexing life Baker finds herself captive to the larger questions raised by Maryam s journey How exactly did the cold war devolve into the war on terror Is the argument between Islam and the West a metaphysical one or a historical one Is Maryam s story just another bleak chapter in the so called clash of civilizations Or does it signify something else entirely And then there s this is the life depicted in Maryam s letters home and in her books an honest reflection of the one she lived Like many compelling and true tales The Convert is stranger than fiction It is both a gripping story of a life lived on the radical edge and a profound meditation on the roots of terror in our age of dread Get the book www amazon com www barnesandnoble com www indiebound org
