    3. Michael Schumacher did such a good job writing ALLEN GINSBERG's life that often I felt as if I were with Allen as if Allen actually wrote this book through Schumacher. What a truly fascinating, gifted, talented, courageous man Allen Ginsberg is. I highly recommend this book to everyone. There is no one that would not benefit from reading this book your life your views your ideals will shift and morph and change you will be a more well-rounded person for it.

    4. Sympathetic treatment of Ginsberg. Wide coverage of his doings and dealings as poet, celebrity, friend. Review cut short by carpal tunnel syndrome and/or boss visiting cubicle
