    HEllo everyone....

    I'm new to writing. I've been a fan of authors like Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs and Jack London for a long time. I look forward to posting on here

    I recognize those first two names. I have read Ginsberg though, and really enjoyed his poems, Howl especially. I'll have to read Kerouac and Burroughs if they're in any way likeminded to Ginsberg. Very special time in literature, those guys.

    And of course, Jack London's works are classic.

    You should certainly check out Jack Kerouac if you enjoyed Ginsberg, they were all friends, along with Burroughs, and have very similar themes and writing styles
