About this title


This is a wonderful book of poems from the great poets in America.

About the Author:

Frank Lima was born in New York City in "Spanish Harlem," 1939. His parents were Mexican/Puerto Rican. After a troubled youth of sexual abuse, gangs, drug abuse, and its consequences, he began studying poetry, having been influenced by Allen Ginsberg, Robert Lowell and Pablo Neruda. He would later go on to receive a Masters from Columbia University and become a significant voice in the New York City poetry scene in the ‘60s along with his teachers Frank O’Hara and Kenneth Koch. In the ‘70s Lima dropped out of the poetry world (although he would continue to write) to devote his time to his family and pursue a career in the food services industry, as he was "classically trained," in his youth, in classical French Cooking. He is now a teacher at the New York Restaurant School where he teaches culinary arts.
