A Coney Island of the Mind

A new printing of Ferlinghetti's classic. The title of this vibrant collection of poems is taken from Henry Miller's Into the Night Life, and expresses the way Ferlinghetti felt about these poems when he wrote them during a short period in the 1950s -- as if they were, taken together, a kind of circus of the soul.
