9780143112495: I Celebrate Myself: The Somewhat Private Life of Allen Ginsberg

In the first biography of Ginsberg since his death in 1997 and the only one to cover the entire span of his life, Ginsberg's archivist Bill Morgan draws on his deep knowledge of Ginsberg's largely unpublished private journals to give readers an unparalleled and finely detailed portrait of one of America's most famous poets. Morgan sheds new light on some of the pivotal aspects of Ginsberg's life, including the poet's associations with other members of the Beat Generation, his complex relationship with his lifelong partner, Peter Orlovsky, his involvement with Tibetan Buddhism, and above all his genius for living.

Review:

"The most intimate and revealing biography of the poet to date . . . deeply delves into . . . previously unexplored territory." -"San Francisco Chronicle" "No other biographer has given us such a totally straight three-dimensional picture of Allen Ginsberg. It is unembedded reportage at its very best." -Lawrence Ferlinghetti "Morgan's provocative and thoroughly researched new biography is a testament to the creative fruits and personal anguish of Ginsberg." -"The Washington Post" "By far the best researched and most thorough of the three major Ginsberg biographies." -"Los Angeles Times Book Review"
