Bohemia : Where Art, Angst, Love, and Strong Coffee Meet. Gold offers anecdotes, not an anatomy, and his book is thin as a guide to such places as Greenwich Village and the Left Bank. Most noteworthy are those experiences involving literary figures: as a college freshman in 1943, Gold attended a party held by poets in New York and was nearly seduced by Anais Nin; in Paris some 15 years later, he looked on as novelist William Burroughs used a sink as a urinal.
Bohemia has its charismatic leaders, its gurus, gods, and devils - and Herbert Gold chronicles them compellingly in this unique moveable feast. Begin to read Bohemia and you will wander to the Left Bank of Paris in the fifties, where you will linger with William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, Jean Genet and Henry Miller. You will sip a dark brew, arguing politics and passion, in a Jerusalem coffeehouse just after the Six-Day War. You will join drug-amplified street theater "happenings" in the San Francisco of Haight-Ashbury, the sixties, and the ongoing Loizaida of Manhattan.

Herbert Gold's "Bohemia: Where Art, Angst, Love, and Strong Coffee Meet" is a very personal tour through late-20th-century bohemia. Long a resident of San Francisco, Mr. Gold has also lived in Paris (during its intoxicating postwar years), Haiti, Israel and New York. He has had all the obligatory experiences of a well-traveled bohemian of his generation. He has received murmurs of sexual possibility from Anais Nin. William Burroughs urinated into the kitchen sink (where lettuce was being washed) to express his displeasure when Mr. Gold brought a date to a dinner party.
