Lunatics, Lovers, Poets, Vets and Bargirls by Gerald Nicosia
Known for his seminal biography of Jack Kerouac, Memory Babe, and the most important work on Vietnam Veterans, Home to War, Nicosia evokes the spirit and vitality of the poets from the Beat Generation, in a voice all his own. These poems are accompanied by haunting and expressive illustrations by Jakub Kalousek that capture Nicosia's intense imagery.
Very strong, clear-eyed, fine music, full throttle. Nicosia is a portrait painter, and a damn good one. At his best he evokes the vitality and spirit of the Beat masters. His voice is his own.
