The American Express it was interestingand strangebutuh ive read betterhis poetry is much better than this novel. A nonsensical romp with a cast of ridiculous characters Who knew Gregory Corso d written a novel One of the most bizarre novels I have ever read I really had no idea what this story was about when I read it I ve heard two things about this novel one before I read the book and one after I read the book Before I read the book, I heard that Corso decided to write it as he was waiting rather impatiently to hear news of whether some of his poetry was going to get published or not I also believe that this might have been around the time that he was shooting heroin, which may or may not explain some of the bizarre picaresque quality to the novel Corso and Burroughs seemed to have been pretty close buds so maybe there is a heroin connection there too What I heard some time after I had finished and put down the novel, and this really becomes quite a fascinating exercise of guesswork, was that each of the characters in the novel refers to a different member of the Beat generation whom Corso directly knew So there is a Ginsberg Ginsy , Burroughs, Kerouac and many in there s Gregory, baby, it is a bad idea for a poet to write a novel, particularly if he is strung out on the pharmaceuticals in gay Paris and writing to a deadline for a publisher who just wants another BEAT novel to put on his list And what did Giordis do with all that money Spunked it on blackbird pate and Latin dancers, that s what he did, didn t he Corso, you were being played here, and the novel is a mess The first edition Olympia Press copy is a beautiful coll Shouldn t have been published Crap The worst kind of surrealistic prose PDF The American Express Gregory Corso Polishdarling.co.uk Beat Poet Corso S Only Novel Inspired By His Days In Europe, Anxiously Waiting For Royalty Checks And Advances That Were Slow To Appear, This Freewheeling And Farcical Tale Is The Account Of A Birth In AmEx, And What Came Of It With Illustrations By The Author First Published 1961 As No 85 In The Traveller S Companion Series First American Publication.
