With perhaps the most unaffected, spontaneous sex passages ever written, the authoress describes her romantic life with delightful result. At the newly founded Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics -- a Buddhist school in Colorado led by an exiled Tibetan guru, the legendary Trungpa Rinpoche (1939-1987) -- Alice takes poetics class and falls in love with the boy of her dreams, fellow student Sam Kashner. Unsuspecting of the adventures that await her, Alice leaves Colorado for Rome. She meets her two godmothers, Lady Jeanne Campbell and Benedictine Abbess Ildegarde of the Monache Camaldolese, and lives with each of them in turn. She has a series of Candide-esque experiences amid the Roman aristocracy and inside a Roman cloister.Back in New York in 2010, hilarity and sincerity follow the star-crossed Alice and Sam Kashner over three years of turmoil and fun!The last Beat poet, Peter Orlovsky dies and Alice reads at his Manhattan memorial with rock star Patti Smith. Deciding to become a journalist Alice embarks on a series of investigative articles that, while published in national media, are unpaid work. Alice becomes homeless, unable to pay her rent. Calamities aboard the New York subway in winter ensue.
