Lawrence Ferlinghetti on the old San Francisco, his new novel, and his first 100 years

Perhaps no living American deserves the honorific ?man of letters? more than Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Best known as a poet?his poetry collection A Coney Island of the Mind, first published in 1958, has sold more than one million copies?Ferlinghetti is also a novelist, playwright, publisher, and bookseller. In 1956, he published Allen Ginsberg?s Howl and Other Poems at City Lights Books, which was then, Ferlinghetti says, both a one-room bookshop and a ?two-bit poetry press? in San Francisco.
