The family album of collaborative poems is a celebration of a community of poets in the East Village of Manhattan at the end of the 1970s and beginning of the 1980s. The book gathers poems written collaboratively between Greg Masters and a number of other poets: Ted Berrigan, Jim Brodey, Cliff Fyman, Allen Ginsberg, Jim Hanson, Bob Holman, Gary Lenhart, Steve Levine, Elinor Nauen, Vito Ricci, Michael Scholnick, Lorna Smedman, Nellie Villegas, Tom Weigel, Jeffrey Cyphers Wright.

In addition, the book is greatly enhanced with a selection of photos by Monica Claire Antonie chronicling the East Village poetry scene of the era.
