    gedichtsgewijs vind ik het allemaal wel wat teleurstellend maar het idee inspireert en het geeft een interessante vogelvlucht boven ginsberg & the beats - vooral leuk als aanvulling op - of - voor een oja lezing

    Enjoyable, but flawed. A decent overview of the life of Allen Ginsberg. For a proper biography, look elsewhere.

    This was an interesting read. Part biography, part poem, part commentary; really catches you in the incredible flow of Ginsberg's life. This was an interesting read. Part biography, part poem, part commentary; really catches you in the incredible flow of Ginsberg's life.
