Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Now available in paperback, this intimate "family album" is a revealing photographic look at the Beat Generation as chronicled by the movement's great poet, Allen Ginsberg. His photographs and the extensive inscriptions he added to them years later preserve what he referred to as "the sacredness of the moment," the often joyous communion of friends and the poignancy of looking back to intensely felt times. More than 70 prints are brilliantly reproduced in this book, accompanied by an essay exploring Ginsberg's photography in relation to his poetry and other photographers of the time, a chronology of his photographic activity, and selections from an interview with Ginsberg in 1991.
