Out his highly significant and productive 99 years on this planet The Little Boy of the title is Ferlinghetti himself as a child shuffled from his overburdened mother to his French aunt to foster childhood with a rich Bronxville family Service in World War Two including the D Day landing graduate work and a scholar gypsy's vagabond life in Paris followed These biographical reminiscences are interweaved wit. Rarely in one s life does one encounter a book that speaks so clearly to one s very being that the book becomes a vade mecum like the 1939 OXFORD BOOK OF ENGLISH VERSE for me or the Bible for others or perhaps Yevtushenko s poetry or Dostoyevsky s novelsLITTLE BOY is not one of those books This mess is not a stream of consciousness but rather a stream resulting from bladder control issues Mr Ferlinghetti might have something to say to the world but he hasn t done so here The attempt at techniue is so self conscious so precious that a 16 year old would be ashamed of this and would resolve to do better in futureI gave it up around page 120 and regret the loss of time wasted in this extended formless gormless temper tantrum
