Description
 
Chronicling the correspondence between Allen Ginsberg & his father, this book offers an intimate look into the heart & family of one of America’s greatest poets. As a literary portrait of a father & son, little can match the eloquence & honesty of this collection, written between 1944, when Allen is a rebellious college student, & 1976. They debate every major political & artistic issue that faced America in over 3 decades of change. Their correspondence also illuminates the defining moments that shaped Allen’s art -- his experimentation with LSD, his various love affairs & obsessions, his travels around the globe. We see the crucial process of a poet’s widening experience of the world, & how these experiences are translated into his work. Photos.
