really liked it
bookshelves: memoir-biography
Read in August, 2009

Helen Weaver's candid memoir of life in Greenwich Village in the 1950's is a compelling read and an inside view into some of the major Beat Generation writers and artists. I had the opportunity to read a pre-publication copy and I couldn't put it down.
