Nice informative piece. I've got a smattering of the stuff mentioned but not any Gingberg. Is Howl worth getting?

You don't have any Ginsberg?????

(surprised, if ya couldn't tell smiley - winkeye)


Yeah, I would think very much so. Unless you happen to be a homophobe, in which case ... well, you mightn't be too happy. In fact, if you have any sort of prejudice ... you mightn't be too happy. It's graphic. But very, very good (in my opinion). I bet your library would have it; that would probably be the best place to go if you aren't familiar with lots of Ginsberg's work.

(I think it is fantastic. smiley - smiley)

Thanks, I'll give it a go! The quotes in the article were enough to get me interested.. actually, thinking about it, I do have some spoken Gingsberg on "Combat Clash"!
