The poetry and life of Allen Ginsberg : a narrative poem by Ed Sanders( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ginsberg's powerful and unflinchingly honest poetry empowered the counterculture of the 50s and 60s along with his memorable persona and his messages of peace and love. In this biographical narrative poem, Ed Sanders, a Ginsberg contemporary and friend, and one of the Beats' favorite sons, charts a path through what he calls the "Forest Ginsberg."" "An unsentimental elegy, an epic tribute, a dramatic documentary portrait, The Poetry and Life of Allen Ginsberg reveals in detail the man and the artist through the eyes and in the voice of a Ginsberg intimate, a fellow poet and admirer, a man who shares the ecumenical outlook and resolute social conscience of one of our century's most popular and controversial literary figures. Sanders leads us chronologically through history as witnessed, reflected and created by Ginsberg, introducing us to Ginsberg's friends and foes and the luminaries and common men and women alike that populated his world. Ed Sanders's poem is a journalistic biography of a man and his passionately unique world view."--Jacket
Tales of beatnik glory by Ed Sanders( Book )

18 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in English and German and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ed Sanders's mock-heroic (and heroic) odyssey follows poet, filmmaker, and activist Sam Thomas, editor of Dope, Fucking, and Social Change, and a variegated cast of castoffs, dropouts, peaceniks, freakniks, and mendicant filthniks, from Kansas through the beatnik and hippie countercultures of New York City's Lower East Side and Greenwich Village. From the Freedom Rides and confrontations with the Alabama Klan to the "hate-dappled" Summer of Love, Tales of Beatnik Glory is the epic of America in the sixties, in a language of droll invention and stoned mythopoesis, from a man who once dared to exorcise the Pentagon. This revised edition adds two new volumes and includes twenty-five never-before-published stories

Sharon Tate : a life by Ed Sanders( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1971, Ed Sanders published The Family, his insider's account of the Manson family murders; it was an immediate sensation. Using the same investigative skills and insider contacts that informed his counterculture classic, Sanders delivers the definitive account of the brief and tragic life of Sharon Tate. The biography takes a close look at Tate's life-from her itinerant childhood and early career in fashion to her transition to film, passionate marriage to the brilliant and troubled Roman Polanski, and violent murder at the hands of the Manson family cult. Sanders's Sharon Tate offers new insights into what happened on the night of her death and explores new motives for the targeting of the Polanski household. Illustrated with Rick Veitch's evocative images, Sharon Tate is required reading for anyone fascinated by the dark side of the '60s."--
