I am currently reading a book named The Portable Beat Reader, edited by Ann Charters. It is an overview of the history of the Beat Generation of the 1950s and the people that were influenced by them.

I am a big fan of the Beats,which happened during my childhood I wished that I had been born a decade earlier because I would have loved to have heard Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Amiri Baraka, Gregory Corso and others read. I will admit that they have influenced me. I started writing poetry in earnest over two years ago. I have written nearly 100 poems. I will be reading some on a upcoming radio program.

I do recommend this book for fans of the Beats
