The Story of Howl by Allen Ginsberg

  • Mar 25, 2015

In this short film Las Vegas bookseller Embry Clark recounts the daring and controversy behind the 1956 publication of Howl by Allen Ginsberg, and the start of the Beat movement.





Embry Clark

Embry joined the Las Vegas gallery in 2008 after completing her MFA in Creative Writing at UNLV, where her studies focused on British and American poetics. As a writer, her work has appeared in the collection Addresses Home, as well as journals such as Mid-American Review, New American Writing, Colorado Review, and Witness. When she’s not selling books, Embry is working her way through an ever-growing stack of poetry, military memoir, true crime, and (most recently) nonfiction about interesting weirdos.

    I am fortunate to own a 6th printing which I got in 1958 and later got signed by Ginsberg in 1988.
