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.

Reviews

Lawrence Ferlinghetti is a national treasure and the kind of poet laureate we really deserve.
His poems burn through modern America's absurdities and unrepentant historical revision in a glorious rant against mediocrity, greed, capitalism and boring poetry.
In the spirit of Whitman, [Ferlinghetti] unwinds a country in all its speed and vibrancy.
Time of Useful Consciousness is a fresh missive from an elderly Beat who has always refused to sit down.
