A collection of autobiographical and lyrical poetry by this contemporary American poet. Rod McKuen (April 29, 1933 – January 29, 2015) was an American poet, singer-songwriter, and actor. He was one of the best-selling poets in the United States during the late 1960s. He settled in San Francisco, where he read his poetry in clubs alongside Beat poets like Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. He began performing as a folk singer at the famed Purple Onion. Over time, he began incorporating his own songs into his act.
Our copy of this classic book has a dust jack with a tiny tear and crease. The interior shows some age but otherwise would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection.
