Poetry. The second volume of our City Lights Spotlight Poetry series, FREE CELL is the latest book of poems from New York-based poet Anselm Berrigan, one of the most influential American poets under the age of forty. In a departure from his previous work, FREE CELL consists of two experimental suites, "Have a Good One" and "To Hell with Sleep," connected by a central poem.
