Reality Sandwiches by Allen Ginsberg


Edited by Michael Köhler

An intimate look into Allen Ginsberg’s private relationship, friendship and lovers throughout the 1940s to the 1980s. Underneath each photograph of this dense photo diary Ginsberg scrawls an anecdote or memory.

Jack Kerouac on visit to Manhattan, last time he stopped at my apartment… he then looked like his father, corpulent red faced W.C Fileds yawning with mortal horror, eyes closed a moment on D.M.T visions – I’d brought some back from Millbrook where I’d recently been with Neal Cassidy in Kesey’s bus, pre-election 1964.

Photos of William S. Burroughs as a young handsome writer in Tangiers working on his montage techniques, Paul Bowles in his linen suit in Tangiers, Timothy Leary on his way via bus to the Millbrook Psychedelic Centre. This book is for the diehard Beat-Generation enthusiast or just anyone interested in beautiful portrait photography.
