Happy Birthday Philip Whalen and Michael McClure
What would have been Philip Whalen's ninety-first birthday (grand old sensei, venerable master) - celebrated today.
We await with eagerness David Schneider's long-in-the-making definitive biography (from the University of California) due out next year (tho' the cover may already be glimpsed - see above - and some advance selections from the book may be read here)
Check out also our earlier posts on Philip on The Allen Ginsberg Project here, here - and also (Philip reading) here
It also happens that Phil shares a birthday with another friend of ours (and friend of his) still happily very much with us - Michael McClure.
