37 Reviews
From New York to Nashville, Boston to L.A., a bohemian rhapsody of rap swagger is spreading across the land. As the "New York Observer" writes: "The poetry corpse is stirring, " its healing heart is "a big, dark, brick-walled loft on Third Street and Avenue C called the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. It's democratic, multicultural...sometimes funny, sometimes ribald. It has the vitality of vulgarity."

About the author (1994)

Miguel Algarín is a founder of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe on New York City's Lower East Side and has hosted the Cafe's live radio broadcasts on WBAI for more than 18 years. He is also a distinguished poet and critic with several books to his credit. He teaches at Rutgers University.
