The Somewhat Private Life of Allen Ginsberg





In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Allen Ginsberg's Howl and Other Poems, two new works have been released which detail the trials and tribulations the beatnik poet experienced throughout his life and career. I Celebrate Myself: The Somewhat Private Life of Allen Ginsberg (Viking) is an in-depth biography of Ginsberg's professional and personal life. The second book, Howl On Trial: The Battle for Free Expression (City Lights Publishers) recounts the story of editing, publishing, and defending the landmark poem while also providing an examination of obscenity issues and censorship of literary works.
