Sometimes wildly offensive (even though at the time, it would probably have been considered very forward-moving in how it portrayed minorities and homosexuals), other times almost charming in how innocent it seemed for being a book "banned in the Village" and elsewhere. The writing also teetered back and forth with some really poetic passages and then some that just seemed like hack writing. Overall, because of the wild inconsistencies (partly due to how long ago it was written I suppose) I found it entertaining. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Banned in court, burned in Greenwich Village, What’s Happening? dares tell the shocking truth about the beat generation.

In addition to being an author, John Nicholas Iannuzzi is a celebrated New York City trial attorney and an adjunct professor of law. He also breeds and trains Lipizzan horses.… (more)
