Otis Gibbs interviews Ben Schafer about Allen and friends – halcyon days in New York’s East Village in the late ‘Eighties. We highly recommend this self-effacing loving and intimate recollection.

Some related content – We’ve already featured Bob Rosenthal (Allen’s secretary)’s memories in a four-part series here and Steve Finbow  has posted a working-for-Allen account (“What It Was Like Working For Allen Ginsberg; A Chat With His Assistant-Turned-Biographer”) – here  –  More memories to come on the Allen Ginsberg Project.
