The above photo is number three in Beatdom’s celebratory fourth birthday photo spectacular! Thanks once again to Jerry Aronson, who has kindly given Beatdom permission to use these never-before-seen photos of Ginsberg & friends.

This week’s photo features Allen Ginsberg with Beat buddy, William S. Burroughs and Norman Mailer, and was taken in 1983.
