About the Author
In 1953 Lawrence Ferlinghetti cofounded City Lights, the first paperback bookstore in the United States, a Mecca for millions. His Coney Island of the Mind is one of the best-selling volumes of poetry by any living American poet. Born in Yonkers, New York, in 1919, Ferlinghetti has received the Robert Frost Memorial Medal and the first Literarian Award of the National Book Foundation.
"From the heartland of true heart comes this eloquent poem of our country's fact and fate. Lawrence Ferlinghetti is our determined conscience, our wit and eloquence--"our steadfast friend and witness--"and our communal wisdom's articulate, patiently insistent old time voice. Would that all might stand up as he and be counted!"
