For the next week I am going to feature the work of a friend and a great writer, A.D. Winans. Come back and read his essays on writing and and the beat poets who were his friends. This work first appeared at emptymirrorbooks.com.
He has given permission to copy them here and said,
The more people who see them, the more understanding of the Beats, and poets not given their just due, when they deserved better.
