Description
This is the story of a boy from working class Queens who discovers poetry, an unlikely obsession that leads him from a Jesuit college's all male, sex-starved campus to the St. Mark's Poetry Project, and then to the Iowa Writers Workshop. He makes up for his previous lack of romance while at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown and goes on to teach at two colleges, with a stay at Yaddo in between. John crosses paths with Raymond Carver, Robert Creeley and John Cheever and receives guidance from mentors like Stanley Kunitz and strangers like Allen Ginsberg. A Moveable Famine is ultimately the portrait of an individual and an age. Above all it is a book about identity.
