From the Publisher:
In the first biography of Ginsberg since his death in 1997 and the only one to cover the entire span of his life, GinsbergÂ's archivist Bill Morgan draws on his deep knowledge of GinsbergÂ's largely unpublished private journals to give readers an unparalleled and finely detailed portrait of one of AmericaÂ's most famous poets. Morgan sheds new light on some of the pivotal aspects of GinsbergÂ's life, including the poetÂ's associations with other members of the Beat Generation, his complex relationship with his lifelong partner, Peter Orlovsky, his involvement with Tibetan Buddhism, and above all his genius for living.
On the 50th anniversary of Allen Ginsburg's seminal masterpiece, HOWL, this massive biography gives a detailed look into the long and raucous life of one of America's great poets. Following Ginsburg from his wild days with Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady, to his ascent as counter-culture guru, to his iconic yet anachronistic status in the years after the Cold War, I CELEBRATE MYSELF provides intimate insights into the life of a man whose persona became part of the American psyche.


"[A] full-scale posthumous literary tribute consisting of an exhaustive yet not exhausting, swiftly readable new biography." - Walter Kirn 11/19/2006
