Glimpses of Allen Ginsberg, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday and Jack Kerouac dot this memoir of a Jew from Queens, N.Y., who met and married controversial black poet LeRoi Jones while living in late-1950s Greenwich Village bohemia. PW called this a ``restrained autobiographical mix of introspection and gossip.'' (July)
