Far from merely paying respect to a man proclaimed as one of the key figures of twentieth-century American literary and cultural history, this volume provocatively recreates the impassioned voice of Ginsberg as man, poet, revolutionary and political activist. Always witty and engaging, this collection of interviews from throughout Ginsberg's career reveals his attitudes towards poetry and drugs, his literary influences and personal relationships.
