Dinners and Nightmares
Dinners and Nightmares

Diane di Prima has long been recognized as one of the strongest voices of her generation, and one of the few women who was able to break through the male-dominated beatnik scene. Her poetic portrayal of lowlife bohemians and revolutionary mentalities shatter the conservative myths of the Fifties and lay bare the emerging sexual experimentation that would shape the Sixties. Dinners & Nightmares was originally published in 1961 by Corinth Books and quickly garnered critical acclaim. This new edition features an additional section of poems and prose pieces from the same period, never before published in book form. Forward by Robert Creely.
