Part of the New York Poets series. Kushner has long been packing them in for his readings in New York’s poetry underground - places such as the KGB Bar and the Cornelia Street Café. Bill Kushner’s streetwise joie de vivre observations charm the hardest of macho hearts. Now, In The Hairy Arms of Whitman shows off for the rest of the country how the Bronx-born son of impoverished Russian immigrants has twisted together the strands of New York’s greatest poetry movements to come up with a style that is uniquely his own - as offbeat and relentless as Alan Ginsberg and the Village Beatniks, as funny and intellectually sharp.

Early in his career, he also produced a temperance.

Of all American poets, almost no one looms larger than Walt Whitman. As I once heard an old poet acquaintance say, American poets don’t need Shakespeare and the Bible; we’ve got Dickinson and Whitman. Indeed, Whitman’s voice emerges from the past like some American Moses, showing the way forward, opening his arms to hold his fractious countrymen together.
