really liked it
bookshelves: shortfiction, potree

I really like this collection. The selections are illustrative of body of works and the critical notes and background are good. I do think Bob Dylan's inclusion in this anthology is a bit odd. I mean INFLUENCED by the Beats okay (but then again, that would also include half the creative writing department of where I went to college)but as an example of Beats? Nope.
