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.
