Howl: A Graphic Novel (Paperback)
Now a Major Motion Picture!
First published in 1956, Allen Ginsberg's Howl is a prophetic masterpiecean epic raging against dehumanizing society that overcame censorship trials and obscenity charges to become one of the most widely read poems of the century.
About the Author
Allen Ginsberg was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters as well as a winner of the National Book Award for Poetry. He was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1926, and died in New York City in 1997.
Eric Drooker is a third generation New Yorker, born and raised on Manhattan Island. His paintings are frequently seen on covers of "The New Yorker" magazine, and hang in various art collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. Drooker is the author of two graphic novels, "Flood! A Novel in Pictures" (winner of the American Book Award), and "Blood Song: A Silent Ballad". He collaborated with Beat poet Allen Ginsberg on the underground classic, "Illuminated Poems". His provocative art has appeared on countless posters, book and CD covers, and his hard-edged graphics are a familiar sight on street corners throughout the world. He gives frequent slide lectures at colleges and universities.
