  1. Of course it's all fiction. Ginsberg never visited Carr while he was in jail before his plea. One account says Carr's attorney only allowed Celine Young to visit him – it was a way to establish his heterosexual credentials since Celine was a looker. In a letter to his father Ginsberg repeated what Carr told Young – he was so drunk when the incident happened his recollection was hazy and a lot of the night was a blank. Interestingly, the Stanford University Ginsberg archive has a letter from Allen Ginsberg to Lucien Carr dated August 13, 1944. Why would he write to Carr since they saw each other all the time. Could it be an explanation or apology for the less-than-flattering things Ginsberg wrote in his journal about Carr that Carr had read that afternoon?
