  1. I remember purchasing the original 'Coney Island of the Mind' while in high school and I preferred it to the pretentious, calculated (to me, anyway) writing contained in Leonard Cohen's 'Spice Box of Earth' and 'Flowers for Hitler' (which were purchased around the same time.)

    Thanks for bringing back some warm memories.

    1. You're welcome. I've long been a fan of Ferlinghetti who's now 95 and seemingly still going strong. I came to Leonard Cohen's music late and have never read any of his novels or poetry. . . .
