Coney Island of the Mind has been around so long it's easy to take it for granted. Give this perfect edition another look: apart from one or two weaker poems that sound like Zippy Beatnik parodies, it's a surprisngly strong collection. Support LF while's he's still with us: there's even a cd reading that sounds like George Carlin preparing at home. Buy it.

The 50th Ann. Edition is a "must have" The encluded CD, with Ferlinghetti reading (more correctly interpreting)his beautiful, poignant and still relevant poetry takes me back to the "City Lights" bookstore in San Francisco listening to Ferlinghetti, Ginsburg, et. al.

First purchased in paperback in the 60's, this went missing even as my brain, 50 years later, wanted to experience it again. The CD is lovely (driving around listening to Ferlinghetti read his poetry on your car CD player ... a mind blower, for sure), the book itself is perfectly reproduced ... what's not to love? The poems themselves might seem a little dated if you are stuck in your own time zone (as would Shakespeare, if he weren't Holy) ...but you know, there's a lot of interesting stuff going on here.
