As Bill Morgan writes in this new biography- the first since the poet's death in 1997 and the only one to cover his entire life- Ginsberg was one of our greatest citizens, a true American hero. His love for freedom and equality was unparalleled and uncompromising; he put himself on the line time and time again to fight for those rights, and his work as a champion of free speech led to a cultural change that swept the entire world. His greatness as a poet lay most of all in his manner of confronting life; he had a genius for living, for examining himself candidly, and in this way his writing encouraged people to follow their own paths."(front flap) A lengthy, comprehensive chronicle of the life & times of the great Beat literary icon Allen Ginsberg, by Bill Morgan, who also has edited Ginsberg's essays & journals.
