"[A] jaunty and readable account of artisitc friendship and collaboration in Manhattan in the 1950s and early ’60s…Lehman tells this story with spirit." —The New York Times Book Review

"A highly readable and fittingly hybridized book: part cultural history, part speculative essay, part literary criticism, part biography…[Lehman] weaves narrative strands together with pertinent and lucid appreciation of the poetry." —
The New York Observer

"Lehman skillfully waeves biographical sketches into his account of the poets’ work and friendships…Makes a vivid, substantial constribution to our picture of New York in the ’50s." —San Francisco Chronicle
