Editorial Reviews

"Not only is this book a joy to read, it''s a necessary chronicle of a fascinating, often overlooked key character in modern American letters." - Los Angeles Times

"The first biography of the poet Frank O''Hara (1926-1966) is also an extremely informative gossip-survey of the social and sexual mores of the New York avant-garde art scene in the 50s and 60s. . . . Entertaining and readable." - San Francisco Chronicle

"Brad Good has brought Frank O''Hara''s brilliance and prescience to the attention of a new generation and beyond, alerting some and reminding others of this mercurial poet, the great New York laureate of the last of this century. . . . His life was a terrific display of guts and wit and style and passion. Gooch conveys all of this with lightness and thoroughness." - Luc Sante
