Author Vincent Zangrillo in conversation with Bernard Meisler.
Vincent (Vinnie) Zangrillo is the author of Dime Bag, a collection of short stories recounting his misadventures in downtown NYC in the 1970s. We spoke about his time at Naropa, when he hung out with Burroughs, Ginsberg and especially Corso, who ended up moving into Vinnie’s East Village apartment back in the ’70s when Ginsberg kicked him out for making too much noise. Vinnie talked about the time Corso got a Hell’s Angel to read a poem at Naropa, Corso’s search for his mother, and an interesting rumor about the death of Jerry Garcia.

I am trying to reach Vinnie for an old friend who grew up with him in Baldwin. Dave Sherman is now disabled and unable to type this email for himself.
Please ask him to contact Dave at 831-247-6198.
Wow that’s weird. I just spoke to Dave’s mom, unfortunately he’s not doing too well. And then I stumbled on this.
