Simon Vinkenoog is a highly-respected poet, editor and cultural figure in his native Amsterdam: indeed, such is his visibility that, for a while, he was a hero of a popular comic strip. He has continually spear-headed avant-garde movements in Amsterdam and abroad, beginning with a series of important English/Dutch translations of various Beat poets, including Ginsberg. Later work included a cultural mission for the U.N. in India, where he had spent many of his formative years. For many years, he has edited Bres, a magazine of cultural and anthropological writing. He is also the co-author of over 20 books of prose and poetry. One of these, Liefde ("Love"), records Ira Cohen's first appearance in Amsterdam--wearing an Arabian burnous.
