In this debut collection of poetry and prose by Brooklyn-based artist and writer Dan Bina, comes a refreshing syncopated portrait of New York City life as seen from a relative newcomer living in a place both bewildering and enchanting. Following in the traditions of Ferlinghetti, Kerouac, and Ginsberg, Bina marks his own path through the city tying memories and personal accounts of the daily grind in what amounts to a heartening read.
Dan Bina was born in rural Illinois in January 1984. After studying Fine Art at the Chicago Academy for the Arts and earning his B.F.A. in Painting from the Kansas City Art Institute, Dan made his way to New York City.
