The best book on the beat generation ever written. It's a prose poem, not a traditional "history" or exposition, and Saroyan captures the very spirit of the beats here, in a poetic gripping ride through American culture. This was truly a let down.
I enjoy and admire the poetry of Lew Welch. He is in my opinion the best of the Beat poets. I wanted a good secondary course, especially after the latest Brautigan bio turned out to be so enjoyably readable. I can't tell if GENESIS ANGELS is just poorly written or sadly outdated in style.

It's Saroyan who's transported-by a vision of Welch as a poet/martyr who gives up his right to an American dream and dares to get in touch with the realities of Being. Coming up with ""life-death"" as the quintessential yin-yang of Being, Saroyan heralds Welch's suicide elegiacally: ""And Lew dying, then, with a kind of perfection and splendor that was in advance of the studies of the subject now in currency. Pseudo-bohemian effusions, with sidelights on the Beats, as Aram Saroyan plays in the stream of another poet's consciousness where ""the sound of one hand clapping is the sound of two hands clapping because that is the sound of one hand clapping.
over any shabby dismissal of Genesis Angels. To anyone interested in Lew Welch: please ignore Cioran Sellers, who appears to be writing from the cold, dank cellar of his heart. I found a library copy of this short book-which, by its length alone is clearly not intended to be anything approaching an exhaustive bio of Welch-and inhaled it an afternoon like Lew would a bottle of whiskey. The title, admittedly, is misleading.
