Excerpts from Amazon reviews:
Quite simply put, Steven Jay Bernstein (his real name) was one of the most fascinating and talented poets in the last half century.
I used to put this on at the record store I worked out to clear everyone out at closing.
Steven Bernstein was completely unhinged and used that freedom to observe the world from strange points of view and with a level of perception and honesty that is a little disturbing.
Poverty, drugs, self hatred, misogyny, its all here if you like that sort of stuff.And who doesn't?
Prison will not only spin in your CD player, it will make you're heart go in circles.
Forget Rollins, Jessee is where Burroughs & Bukowski meet, & his eyes are not averted.
This is an important voice that will enlighten your sense of imagination, make you laugh, get nervous, and maybe change the way you think or see the world.
Makes Bukowski sound like he had an easy life.
