Inhaltsangabe: The originator of Spoken Word and performance poetry, John Giorno is one of the most influential figures in the world of contemporary performance. You Got to Burn to Shine, his first book in many years, collects intensely rhythmic, sexual and philosophical poetry spanning two decades. Here, too, are deeply personal memoirs, including the story of his friendship with Andy Warhol (Giorno had an occasionally sexual relationship with Warhol, met his mother, and starred in Warhol's first film Sleep); an anonymous sexual encounter with Keith Haring, an aspiring painter who recognized Giorno in a subway station toilet; and notes toward a Buddhist understanding of death in the age of AIDS.
From Library Journal:
Read aloud, Giorno's gritty poetry has an undeniable power and insistence. In print, as he admits, the dynamics don't always work. Conceived as performance pieces, his poems lie flat on the page, begging for a voice charged with emotion. His "litanies from the underworld of the mind," as William S. Burroughs calls them in the introduction, such as triple repetitions of "Crank me/ up and keep me/ open," and "I want to sleep hugging/ someone over and over," may resound in a smoke-filled club but read a little silly here. He offers unrestrained recollections of famed friends, including a harrowing description of Robert Maplethorpe's death from AIDS in 1989 and a graphic depiction of having sex in a New York subway toilet with the late artist Keith Haring while other men participated. Elsewhere Giorno recalls his starring role in Andy Warhol's Sleep. Recommended for Beat, avant garde, and sexual studies collections.
