From Publishers Weekly
This first paperback edition charts the writer's career from his New York School poetry of the early 1940s until his untimely death in 1966.

"Slangy and sharp, genially surreal, the work of the quintessential New York poet shines like polished granite." -- Entertainment Weekly
"[Frank O'Hara's] work seems to me to represent the last stage in the adaptation of twentieth-century avant-garde sensibility to poetry about contemporary American experience. In its music and its language and in its conception of the relation of poetry to the rest of life, it is a poetry which has already changed poets and others, and which promises to go on moving and changing them for a long time to come." -- Kenneth Koch, The New Republic
