I enjoy and admire the poetry of Lew Welch. He is in my opinion the best of the Beat poets. I wanted a good secondary course, especially after the latest Brautigan bio turned out to be so enjoyably readable. I can't tell if GENESIS ANGELS is just poorly written or sadly outdated in style. Imitating Kerouac works as parody, but not as literature. I tried a couple times and couldn't get past a few pages. Hopefully someone is working on a serious and thoughtful Lew Welch biography
