The acclaimed chronicle of the life of the great beat poet, finally in paperback Allen Ginsberg: poet, activist, visionary, soul of the Beat Generation. For many, Ginsberg's powerful and unflinchingly honest poetry empowered the counterculture of the 50s and 60s. In this unsentimental documentary portrait, the celebrated poet Ed Sanders, a Ginsberg contemporary and friend, charts a path through what he calls "Forest Ginsberg," the life and times of one of our century's most popular and controversial literary figures.
