About the Author

Bob Kaufman, one of fourteen children born in Louisiana to a German Jewish father and a black Catholic mother, ran away to sea when he was thirteen, circling the globe nine times in the next twenty years. In the 1950s, when working as a waiter at the Los Angeles Hilton, he met another erstwhile member of the Merchant Marine, Jack Kerouac, and soon thereafter both moved north to found, along withe Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, and others, the San Francisco literary "renaissance" of the time.


"Perhaps the best of the beat poets of the 1950s." -- The National Observer "Mr. Kaufman has a genuine lyric talent and his poetry, at its best is sensuous, exciting, and charged with vitality." -- Publishers Weekly
