Poetry. ELEGY FOR BOB KAUFMAN is poetry of elegance and feeling, a beautiful tribute to a "gone world." It speaks to the author's youthful memories of a great poet, Bob Kaufman--an enormously complex and difficult man. Cherkovski brings to life San Francisco's bohemian community in the late fifties and early sixties. "Neeli Cherkovski has written a magnificent tribute to the memory of Bob Kaufman. Neeli and Bob were close friends and true colleagues in the art of poetry. This gathering of poems is an expression of an era in San Francisco's North Beach literary community. I recommend it to all readers"--Eileen Kaufman.
