Overview

Gasoline & Vestal Lady on Brattle is volume number 8 in the City Lights Pocket Series.

Open this book as you would a box of crazy toys, take in your hands a refinement of beauty out of a destructive atmosphere. These combinations are imaginary and pure, in accordance with Corso’s individual (therefore universal) desire.–Allen Ginsberg

Gregory is a gambler. He suffers reverses, like every man who takes chances. But his vitality and resilience always shine through, with a light that is more than human: The immortal light of his muse.–William S. Burroughs

. . . A touch young kid from the Lower East Side who rose like an angel over the rooftops and sang Italian songs as sweet as Caruso and Sinatra, but in words . . . Amazing and Beautiful Gregory Corso, The one and only Gregory the Herald. Read slowly and see.–Jack Kerouac

[M]ore than fifty years on from when it was first published in 1958, Gasoline (City Lights, 1958) by Beat poet Gregory Corso is a seminal book in the birth of that particular literary generation.–Paul Stubbs, 3AM Magazine
