A very interesting insight to the mind of the young, blossoming poet. After reading this book I feel I have a significantly deeper understanding of Ginsberg's poetry and the context surrounding the Beat Generation. From a very early age Allen had an eloquent and informed way of writing and possessed a certain vanity that only seemed to strengthen with age. While aspects of the reading got a bit tedious for me, such as his dwelling in obsessive heartache over a seemingly apathetic Neil Cassidy, I felt this was one of the most interesting journals of a writer I've yet to read. Some finer details I enjoyed were his monthly lists of books he'd read or music he'd bought, his written accounts of his dreams (some of which became poems) and the addition of relevant letters he'd sent and received from his friends or parents. I definitely recommend this book to any fan of Ginsberg's poetry or influence, or any a Beat Generation fan in general.
