520    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 book 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
