From the Back Cover:

Long live Man! sings the poet Gregory Corso - despite atom bombs and computers, cold wars that get hot and togetherness that isn't, too many cars and too little love...and in these poems he celebrates the wonders (and the laughs and griefs) of being a man alive.

About the Author:

Gregory Corso (1930-2001) was abandoned by his mother a month after his birth at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York. Growing up in foster care and on the streets of Little Italy, Corso was a juvenile delinquent who spent time in Clinton Correctional Facility, in the cell recently vacated by gangster "Lucky" Luciano. An aspiring poet, Corso was taken under the wing of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, and became the youngest member of the Beat Generation's inner circle, with whom he lived and work in the Beat Hotel, a lodging house in Paris, during the late fifties. There he created one of his signature works, "Bomb," a poem composed of typewritten strips of paper arranged in the shape of a mushroom cloud. Late in life, Corso became reunited with his mother and maintained a close relationship with her until his death.

Patti Smith is a writer, visual artist, and performer. Her New York Times bestselling book Just Kids was awarded the 2010 National Book Award for Nonfiction. She is the recipient of France's highest honor for a living artist, the Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, as well as the Polar Award, one of the most distinguished music prizes. Her album Horses was inducted into the Library of Congress National Recording Registry and is number 44 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In 2008, Smith was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2010 she received ASCAP's Founders Award for lifetime achievement. Her books include Witt, Babel, Woolgathering, The Coral Sea, Auguries of Innocence, and M Train.
