Peter Orlovksy in Vermont

[Peter Orlovsky, Allen Ginsberg's office, 437 East 12th St. New York City, 1984. c. Allen Ginsberg Estate]

Peter managed to recover from a close call with pneumonia and was able to travel to the hospice outside Burlington, VT on Thursday. With only one functioning lung, he's not in great shape by any stretch, but is in much better spirits & in a much more comfortable environment.

  1. Heard the news tonight about Peter's passing. That's very sad to hear. He was such an important figure in the history of the Beat movement, and a talented writer too, though up to now he has been somewhat lost in Ginsberg's shadow. Let's hope that will change.
