Reviews


"To read their letters . . . is to overhear the evolution of a remarkable friendship and the birth of a literary flowering we know as the Beat movement." --"San Francisco Chronicle"

"Allen Ginsberg was the poet laureate of the Beat Generation . . . As much through the strength of his own irrepressible personality as through his poetry, Mr. Ginsberg provided a bridge between the Underground and the Transcendental." --"New York Times"

"Reading [Snyder], you encounter a massive, assimilating intelligence, with a startling command of natural and human history." --"New Yorker"
