it was ok
bookshelves: biography

I wanted to like this bk. If only b/c these Hanuman bks in general are so tiny: roughly 2&3/4" X 4". But neither this one or the one I read by Jack Smith did much for me. This is a little hippie autobiography of going to Woodstock & the like. If it had any profound revelations in it, I didn't notice them. Maybe this is as close as it got:

"It was like my tits, my cunt, his dick, fini. My body was a hallway to his. But I loved the power. In any situation I could get my hands on his crotch he would instantly be reduced to a child."
