With his second book Total Gonzo Poems Charles Giuliano documents the true history of the ubiquitous and evocative word gonzo. He coined and was the first to publish gonzo in a July 3, 1970 review of Ten Years After for the Boston Herald Traveler. He was its jazz and rock critic at the time. This colorful, richly, illustrated book explores his Irish and Italian family history with an emphasis on the Nugents of Rockport. In gonzo style he writes about the famous musicians he covered over the years. The range of subjects is diverse, accessible, packs a punch, and is always witty, unique, and entertaining. There is nothing precious, esoteric, or pretentious about this lively and fun collection of poetry. The book includes a scholarly essay, "Gonzo Shine," by former CBS News producer Robert Henriquez.
