    Cherkovski is an amazing biographer and poet , but this book is so much than a series of biographies It s a love letter to poetry and the beat era, to Whitman and those who came after him, to Cherkovski s own youth and poetic path and all the friends he made along the way Loved, loved, loved this book.
