From the publisher: "This is a gathering of the Beats, younger and elder, in the wild and bleak days at the beginning of the 21st century in the last empire. Artists have answered the call and come together to once again renew their sense of community. The bombs are raining down and the children's screams are heard. We are in shock at the cruelty and in awe of the lies. Poets and writers have gathered as they have across time and traditions. This project came to life and its heart began to beat in peace."
