Assuming some understanding and appreciation of a writer's era and his environment, this book is another "chapter" in the life of someone whose efficient yet effective use of language helped document the events of his day. For 'beat' followers, Ginsberg does speak out on the deaths of Neal Cassady and Jack Kerouac in these pages.
