Index

“A zinging, furious output of epistles….”

—Kirkus Reviews

“Gregory Corso, a uniquely North American inner voice, a true Shelley of Lower Manhattan, born and bred in its dust­bin streets (Franz Mazareel’s lonely man in black woodcuts, staggering through skyscrapers’ shadows), yet soaring over them on tough lyric language, Greek in its clarity, a true transmutation of classic Romantic lyric into 21st-century American pillow talk, he’s the last great Beat poet, truth- teller great as Kerouac or Ginsberg, more original than any.”

—Lawrence Ferlinghetti

From a letter to James Laughlin 3/21/60

What a lovely book! The cover is mad! A great cover, should scare even Boris Karloff; really great; thank you; so the bomb had to be else the cover wouldn’t have been; the candle will always be — all good, really a nice looking book, and how funny I felt seeing it, kind of proud and all that, and walked away from the American Express with a silly smile on my face; thanks too for check, I got them both together, and when I went to manager’s office in Amer Express I showed him check and then came up an American tourist who interrupted us and thanked the manager for introducing his wife to some doctor because she was getting too knock-kneed or something, anyway the manager asked for proof if your publishing firm was a secure one, so I showed him the book, and the American said: “Wow! Get that title!” and I said “It’s a happy book, really” and he looked at me kind of oddly and said to the manager “Well, at least he speaks English” and the manager promptly ok’d the check.
