Poetry. Women's Studies. BREAKFAST WITH ALLEN GINSBERG is a collection of fifty poems, some very funny and others very personal and poignant, written by the author of GOD IS A TREE AND OTHER MIDDLE-AGE PRAYERS (Pleasure Boat Studio, 2008) and The Book Doctor (fiction). Cohen has several poems about writing, but most of them are about her friends and family, about daily observations of life both in New York City and in a small village in the Catskills. These poems will make a reader smile, sometimes laugh, almost always reflect on his or her own daily existence and human interactions.
