Synopsis
Dust jacket notes: "The many faces of San Francisco's legendary poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti are portrayed in this stunning and intimate collection of photographs by Christopher Felver. Collected over a twenty-year friendship, the images illuminate both the public bravado of poetry's 'Charlie Chaplin man' and the uncanny constancy of his psyche. Ferlinghetti is glimpsed in his role as proprietor of City Lights Bookstore, working in Hunters Point painting studio, at ease in his cabin retreat at Big Sur, and traversing the continent. The photographs underline the poignant friendships with poets and comrades - Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Gregory Corso, Amiri Baraka, William Burroughs, and John Cage - throughout a long, hilarious, and generous career. Interwoven among the studies is Ferlinghetti's take on the matter, his famed poem 'Autobiography.' Admired by generations of readers around the globe for his best-selling verse The Coney Island of the Mind, Lawrence Ferlinghetti remains a signature presence on the American literary scene. Ferlinghetti has always had his own anarchist cosmology, and Felver's vision reveals the constellation. Ferlinghetti Portrait celebrates the indomitable spirit of the 'foremost chronicler of our time.'"
