Allen Ginberg’s Collected Poems Available As E-book Tomorrow

Craig Morgan Teicher -- October 4th, 2010

It’s a Ginsberg-y kind of season, with the James Franco’s Howl movie playing your local indie theater (and on on-demand Cable, we hear), and new books about Ginsberg, such as Peter Conners’ White Hand Society (coming in November from the poet’s first publisher, City Lights) on the horizon, so we thought we’d share another interesting piece of Ginsberg news you can use: tomorrow, October 5, is the pub date of the e-book edition (here’s the link to Amazon) of Ginsberg’s Collected Poems1947-1997, the over-1200-page mammoth tome containing all of Ginsberg’s poetry.

In our review  of the print edition, we called the book  “A hefty, vivid and important tome, [that] should remind us just how much Ginsberg accomplished.”  For only $18.99 (the paperback is twenty cents less, but it weighs a ton), you really can’t go wrong.

    I second mr. Dailey’s preferences. Hopefully the worn out book is missing a few pages which have been used as wrapping paper for massive joints.
