Herbert Hunke is brilliant, and i suggest reading any & everything you can get your hands on by him. The raw unschooled writings, of a man who lived on the street all over the country, but especially in New York City in the 1940- till his death at the Chelsea Hotel in 1996. God Bless Hunke. He's the reason I write.

Original heroine hipster poet. Rolled with the Beats but to unsavory for the time. I've read this collection a few times. Interesting bio too

Like no Beat before or since. Hunke the Junky is in a class (or a dirty room) by himself.
