“If you want to know what the ’60s really were about, you’ll find out between [these] covers.”—The Kansas City Star
“[Thirsting for Peace in a Raging Century] restores Edward Sanders to his rightful place at the forefront of the poetry of his time, and reminds us that spending one's days in active pursuit of the betterment of all life on the planet isn't necessarily antithetical to the creation of first-rate writing.”—San Francisco Chronicle
This American Book Award–winning collection begins with Edward Sanders' famous first "Poem from Jail," written in 1961 during his incarceration for disrupting the christening of a nuclear submarine, and covers the twenty tumultuous years that followed. Now back in print, this vital addition to all collections of contemporary American poetry and culture chronicles Sanders’ literary, political, and rock 'n' roll adventures, as well as the joys of life in rural Woodstock, New York.
A legend of the American counterculture, Edward Sanders’ recent books include Poems for New Orleans and Let’s Not Keep Fighting the Trojan War.
