Author: Marc Olmsted

Allen Ginsberg said "Marc Olmsted inherited Burroughs' scientific nerve & Kerouac's movie-minded line nailed down with gold eyebeam in San Francisco." His book, What Use Am I a Hungry Ghost? - Poems from 3-Year Retreat (Valley Contemporary Press, 2001), has an introduction by Ginsberg. Marc Olmsted founded New Wave band The Job in 1980, San Francisco. Ginsberg performed with the band on a number of occasions.
