Although Huncke might be a man devoid of much common sense and stability, he makes up for it plenty by being one hell of a charming storyteller - a raconteur - as some have called him. Are we to trust this as a reliable account of his life? The best parts of the book was when Huncke talked about his relationship with Janine Pommy-Vega and Elise Cowen, a woman who was in love with Ginsberg and who later committed suicide.

But Huncke has his own unique place among the beats, a character and someone known about through the writings of others rather than through his own writing. Highly recommended for beat fans. It is fully of honesty.

Dig it! Dec 25, Bill rated it liked it This is a sad book by a survivor who became famous more because of the friends he kept rather than because of his own actions. Huncke is one of the inspirational people the beatniks patterned their movement after. I am glad I read this book, it shows how those who were beat and not famous truly lived something a half century later we never think about.

Jul 22, Steve Dodds rated it it was amazing Amen. Burroughs are discussed at any length. There are however a few very interesting segments between pages on William S. William S. Burroughs and his wife moved almost 50 miles from Houston to New Waverly, Texas. They later got in touch with Allen Ginsberg and got him to persuade Huncke to travel by bus out to East Texas. The intention was to have Huncke bring a container full of marijuana seeds with him so that they could start a crop of marijuana.

They were planning to grow marijuana, harvest it, and drive it back up to New York City to sell. Naturally Huncke screws that up and arrives without the seeds. They eventually score some low-grade marijuana seeds in Houston but the weed turns out to be very, very weak. When he has cash, he holes up in single room occupancy dives. He hustles all over Midtown Manhattan teaming up with other junkies to commit assorted burglaries and automobile break-ins.

He winds up in jail over and over for petty crimes and drug possession. As soon as he gets out of Dannemora, he hits 42nd Street and becomes addicted once again. The writing is nothing special. It got to be quite sordid, this ODing thing.

From having been a really exciting and exhilarating scene, it had passed into a session of chaos. And it began to decay.

Things were rotten, and more and more people were getting sick or dying. At the same time he was telling me I had to find myself a place to live.

I looked the place over. The only thing I could think of that might bring me in some cash was this goddamn rug, so I just tucked it under my arm and staggered out into the cold.

I dropped it, I think, for about 15 dollars. It was a nice rug, probably four-by-eight, and nicely woven. I believe it was domestic —not the real McCoy- but it was a good looking rug.

The people that got it were delighted with it and assured me that if I found anything like that again in the future to be sure and look them up. So I never worried much. You live by your standards. This book is full of similar odd ball pearls of wisdom.
