    Summary

    The aftermath of the second world war is full of pugnaciousness and despair- however, five scholarship kids from Oxford and Cambridge want to shake the world up with their feather pens and worn-out vests.

    Welcome to the London Poet Society, where literature is written in the most genuine, bitter, a little disgusting but beautiful way. Once you step into this man-hole of perplexion that smells of everlasting cigarette and vodka, you are never able to get out- except when it tosses you out from it.

    Summary

    Tripp has two friends in high school: a rebel without a cause, and a girl fighting the social restraints upon her. But only one human being has any real hope of understanding Tripp, and he isn't human at all.

    "Tripp leaned back against the leather. Leather reminded him of Jack, roughly masculine. That wasn't quite Tripp either. 'Al, what material are you?' he asked finally, closing his eyes.

    "There was a pause before Al said, 'Ferrite, mainly.'"

    Summary

    It's 1943 and Jean finds himself wedged between the strict academic conventions of Trost University and the freedom of the budding Beat Generation. Just as his life begins to spiral out of control, he happens upon Marco, a seemingly straight laced man with horn rimmed glasses and a love for Jimmy Stuart. Will Marco help him find his moral compass or will Jean be swept away in a tide of Benzedrine, free verse, and promiscuity?

    Summary

    Kevin finds Mike when he’s looking for his head in the club that’s two blocks from the high school. It’s this hole in the wall with smoke lingering up in the ceiling beams where the poets come out at night to read their verse and Kevin borrows the owner’s guitar and plays so pretty that they forget that he’s still sixteen and clumsy.
