The Shocking Story Of A Girl Who Took The Road To Dope Addiction
The Candid Story Of A Girl Who Lived Recklessly On Forbidden Thrills

From the back:

Rapture For A Moment, Hell For A Lifetime . . .
Dope is no road to ecstasy, no matter what they say. It’s for defeated people . . . like Lora. Bitter, lonely people . . . like Lora. People who are tortured by forbidden love, who are in other people’s lives, who are at the end of their string, morally and emotionally . . . like Lora.
So Lora Took The Turn Into Rapture Alley . . . And Found It’s A Dead-End Street!
Swept along by a tide she could not buck, a fever of love she could not down, Lora was almost lost forever in the whirlpools of dope and degradation . . . until one little twist of fate showed her what she was in for. . . and why it was worthwhile to fight her way back.

America’s Teen-Age Jungle And A Searing Story Of Youth In Search Of ‘Kicks’

From the back:

Against a background of fast-drinking, drug addiction, wild jazz and all-night parties, the young people of today who make up the Beat Generation carry on their desperate search for a meaning to their lives—a search for identity, experience and love. The Beats may be found pursuing their restless quest in every big American city. Here is the world of the Beat Generation—a world of dingy back-stairs, be-bop joints, night-long wanderings, meetings on street corners, hitch-hiking, and ‘hip’ bars.
