    Please allow me to introduce CBGB Was My High School by GK Stritch. The book was influenced by The Beats and provides anecdotes of my own minor, but valued, interactions with Allen Ginsberg and William S. Borroughs, as a young person in New York City. The ISBN is 978-0-9833711-1-3, Full Court Press, 2011. It is available at the British Library, St Pancras, London, England, and can be found online, etc.
