City Poet: The Life and Times of Frank O'Hara

City Poet is the first, and will stand as the definitive, biography of Frank O’Hara, the poet who was at the heart of New York’s literary and artistic life during the 1950s and the 1960s. In this book, Gooch tells the unforgettable story that was suddenly cut short on 25 July, 1966, when O’Hara, just turning forty and at the height of his powers, was struck down by a jeep on the beach at Fire Island. This biography celebrates the life of one of the great American poets of the twentieth century.
