From City Lights Books: "In 1968, visionary poet Diane di Prima moved from Beat New York to hippie San Francisco to begin these 'letters,' poems filled with a blend of utopian imagination, radical politics, and ecological awareness. Immersed in alternative histories and mystical traditions, the poems were catapulted into the world through underground newspapers and free pamphlets, circulating far and wide."
