520    *This program includes archival recordings of John Giorno 
       reading his poems, and an excerpt from Pierre Huyghe's 
       Sleeptalking*A rollicking, sexy memoir of a young poet 
       making his way in 1960s New York City.When he graduated 
       from Columbia in 1958, John Giorno was handsome, 
       charismatic, ambitious, and eager to soak up as much of 
       Manhattan's art and culture as possible. Poetry didn't pay
       the bills, so he worked on Wall Street, spending his 
       nights at the happenings, underground movie premiers, art 
       shows, and poetry readings that brought the city to life. 
       An intense romantic relationship with Andy Warhol--not yet
       the global superstar he would soon become--exposed Giorno 
       to even more of the downtown scene, but after starring in 
       Warhol's first movie, Sleep, they drifted apart. Giorno 
       soon found himself involved with Robert Rauschenberg and 
       later Jasper Johns, both relationships fueling his 
       creativity. He quickly became a renowned poet in his own 
       right, working at the intersection of literature and 
       technology, freely crossing genres and mediums alongside 
       the likes of William Burroughs and Brion Gysin.Twenty-five
       years in the making, and completed shortly before Giorno's
       death in 2019, Great Demon Kings is the memoir of a 
       singular cultural pioneer: an openly gay man at a time 
       when many artists remained closeted and shunned gay 
       subject matter, and a devout Buddhist whose faith acted as
       a rudder during a life of tremendous animation, one full 
       of fantastic highs and frightening lows. Studded with 
       appearances by nearly every it-boy and girl of the 
       downtown scene (including a moving portrait of a decades-
       long friendship with Burroughs), this audiobook offers a 
       joyous, life-affirming, and sensational look at New York 
       City during its creative peak, narrated in the 
       unforgettable voice of one of its most singular 
       characters. This program includes the following archival 
       recordings:1. "There Was A Bad Tree" (2001), recorded by
