Tentative Description of a Dinner Given to Promote the Impeachment of President Eisenhower


Signed pamphlet by Lawrence Ferlinghetti. First read at the Poets' Follies in San Francisco on Sunday May 11, 1958. He had seen Nagasaki a few weeks after the atom bomb destroyed it. That experience changed his life. The Tentative Description is less about Eisenhower than about all Presidents since then and their inability to recognize the nuclear danger; and about the "strange rain that would never stop .. and perverted pollen blown on sunless seas - eaten by irradiated fish who spawned up cloudleaf streams add fell upon our dinner plates." Published by Golden Mountain Press, toning around the edges.
