Lunatics, Lovers, Poets, Vets & Bargirls: Poems
Poetry. The witty, heartfelt and compassionate poems of Gerald Nicosia's first collection come alive in his extraordinary narrative style. Known for his seminal biography of Jack Kerouac, Memory Babe, and the important work on Vietnam Veterans, Home to War, Nicosia evokes the spirit and vitality of the poets from the Beat Generation, yet he speaks with a voice all his own. Haunting and expressive illustrations by Jakub Kalousek are also include in the book and capture Nicosia's intense imagery.
