One Day

"This was the 1950s. One day, I heard about the beatniks. It was a word as yet undefined, or only vaguely defined for me, but wonderful. Goatees, yes, berets, possibly, dark glasses and dissipation. With so little information it was hard to imagine the beatniks very vividly. I thought they might go around reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe, for some reason." - Lewis Nordan, BOY WITH LOADED GUN
