Reviews

"A representative sampling from an iconic American poet...A well-chosen selection of [Ginsberg's] writings...testimony to an often outrageous, groundbreaking poet and tireless social activist."--Kirkus Reviews
"When planet earth is dust THE ESSENTIAL GINSBERG will be one of the books to take to Mars to remember us by."---Anne Waldman
"In these memory orchards Allen Ginsberg flashes from the divinely practical to inspired songs and factual revelations...They shine on the future..."--Michael McClure
"An intellectually impeccable selection, distilling Ginsberg as visionary mystic and dark prophet foretelling what people in power didn't want to hear."--Lawrence Ferlinghetti
"The career-arching overview [Ginsberg's work] deserves...What distinguishes this book from other posthumous Ginsberg collections is that it also presents small samples of his songwriting, essays, interviews, letters, journal excerpts, and understated photography...An essential starting point for any reader encountering the artist's still-controversial work for the very first time."--Library Journal (starred review)
