The blurb affixed to the back reads: "The beatnik can find diversion in Washington, but no one knows for how long. The Coffee 'n Confusion, an all-night coffee shop is doing thriving business. It sells a lot of coffee, a little food, and provides a place for the bearded beatniks to read poetry. Neighbors and police lost a fight to block the restaurant's opening when the Board of Licenses could find nothing in the law against beatniks." Near fine (7" x 9").

Price: $35.00
