These are supplemented with a number of informative notes furnished by the editor, and the collection is further enriched with a foreword by Dick Brukenfeld who was an early friend and supporter of Corso as well as the publisher of the poet's first collection, The Vestal Lady on Brattle. Casting light on Corso's life and writing, these highly readable interviews hold much of interest." (Dr. Gregory Stephenson, quoted on back cover) The foremost insightful interviews with Gregory Corso (1930-2001), among the Primary Poets of the Beat Generation.
