Night blooming jasmine will never smell the same is a collaboration between Michael Alago and Keith Caputo, in which they share poems, observations and rants.
The book emerged out of their long standing friendship and their love of the French Decadent Movement (Rimbaud, Baudelaire), the Beat Poets (Ginsberg, Burroughs and Ferlinghetti) as well as American artists such as Charles Bukowski, Jim Morrison and Patti Smith.
This is the first of many collaborations as Michael and Keith are already working on a second book, tentatively titled “Today is the day”.
Michael and Keith will be touring Europe and the US (US dates will be communicated later on).
At each show, they will be reading the entire book, which will also be available for sale and signed after the show.
The first dates are:
Oct 25: USA - New York, Bowery Electric
(327 bowery, NYC 212-228-0228, tickets are $8.00)
