Digressions on Some Poems by Frank O'Hara: A Memoir

New York, NY: Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. Written by the dedicatee of O'Hara's "Lunch Poems," this is a resource unlike any other we have pertaining to the life of O'Hara. As the text on the front flap states, LeSeur lived with O'Hara for ten years from 1955-1965, the years in which O'Hara created the bulk of his major work. LeSeur's memoir is a "memoir,"--it's fueled by personal reminiscences & opinionated conjectures, and ones factually-based at that. His record of Frank, and of that time, must be taken with the verity these pages shine with. LeSeur gives us an intimate portrait of O'Hara and his observations on his life at the period that is of most interest to many of his admirers and certainly all Beat-&-Beyond scholars. From the collection of Ken & Ann Mikolowski, founders of Detroit's visionary "Alternative Press," publishers & friends of many "Beat Generation/Black Mountain/New York School" authors. Book in very fine condition, virtually as new. Dust jacket in fine condition, with only slightest evidence of shelf-wear and two slight spots from coffee staining at center-bottom of recto wrapper, and price tag with barcode from Ann Arbor's famed Shaman Drum Bookshop on dust jacket verso. Very Fine / fine. [Item #2931]
