New Directions, New York: 1958. Hardcover, no dustjacket. Good condition. Includes a slipcase which is also in good condition. The title of this book is taken from Henry Miller's Into the Night Life and expresses the way Lawrence Ferlinghetti felt about these poems when he wrote them during a short period in the 1950s -- as if they were taken together, a kind of Coney Island of the mind, a kind of circus of the soul.

A Coney Island of the Mind is a collection of poetry by Lawrence Ferlinghetti originally published in 1958. It contains some of Ferlinghetti's most famous poems, such as I am Waiting, and Junkman's Obbligato, which were created for jazz accompaniment. There are approximately a million copies in print of A Coney Island, and the book has been translated into over a dozen languages. It remains one of the best-selling and most popular books of poetry ever published.
