A wonderful collection of poems by Ferlinghetti about his beloved San Francisco. Each poem captures a different aspect of the city and its people, what Ferlinghetti loved and what he detested about what happens in his city. One of my favorites of the collection is "A Report on a Happening in Washington Square, San Francisco," which talks not only about a beautiful area of the city, but of lives being joined and lives going their own way. Ferlinghetti's poems give a real, gritty, loving sense of a city for those who live there and for those who know it through visits.
