Get this book. If you love poetry, if you love language, if you love passionate expression and beauty...get it. Patchen was like no one else. That's why Henry Miller wrote about him in an essay called "Kenneth Patchen: Man of Anger & Light."
This work created in a time when artists made art and put their energies into more than "appearing" as an artist.
Quit being a p!@#$* and read it.
"Journal of Albion Moonlight" is not "On The Road." The only other novel I have read that compares to it in any way is Frank Stanford's "The Battlefield Where The Moon Says I Love You."
I admit that two or three decades of experience do make The Journal more intelligible, and I will probably always have a bookmark or two in this novel--because sometimes I am just in the mood for it.
