"The countercultures that came to define bohemia spanned the Atlantic, from Walt Whitman to Josephine Baker, and from Gertrude Stein to Thelonious Monk. Bohemians is the graphic history of this movement and its illustrious figures, recovering the utopian ideas behind millennial communities, the rise of Greenwich Village and Harlem, the multiracial and radical jazz and dance worlds, and West Coast, Southern, and Midwest bohemias, among other scenes. Drawn by an all-star cast of comics artists, Bohemians is a broad and entertaining account of the rebel impulse in American cultural history"-- Provided by publisher.

Bohemia will only have a place in history. Not in the schools, but in this magnificent book.

A sweeping graphic history of the contrarians and artistic free-thinkers who gave us.... today's hipsters. Besides profiling the likes of Thelonious Monk, Walt Whitman and Josephine Baker, Buhle and Berger also highlight the arrival of modern art in New York in 1915 and the confluence of the labor movement and folk music that began in the early 20th century.
