Description

Author Ada Calhoun talks with Liz DiNovella about her most recent book, “Also a Poet: Frank O’Hara, My Father, and Me“, giving personal insight into her father, “New York School” poet Frank O’Hara. O’Hara was the center of poets and artists from the 1950’s and 1960’s who ushered in a lusty new gay sensibility–urbane, witty, obsessed with all forms of culture from Russian ballet to the trashiest Hollywood movie.
