Today is award-winning Beat poet Diane di Prima's 86th birthday. I don't think she appeared in any of Jack Kerouac's works, but he appeared in hers in a randy sex scene in her Memoirs of a Beatnik. I liked that book a lot, in particular how she graphically but sensitively described her various sexual experiences.
We reviewed her 2015 poetry book, The Poetry Deal, HERE, and curated it HERE. We curated Memoirs of a Beatnik HERE.
In honor of her birthday, you can read about Diane and find some of her poetry HERE.
Happy Birthday, Ms. di Prima!
