ISBN: 0970395213
Austin, TX: Skanky Possum, 2000. First Edition. Softcover. "Blast from the Past," as the title enumerates, is an amalgam of varied selections chosen by Elmslie to reinforce this book's general retrospective theme. It is uniquely comprised of memoir-esque recollection, Elmslie's signature, twangy vowel-wound poetry and threads of lost biography that deepen our picture of Frank O'Hara, John Latouche, and the many other figures of the New York avant-garde during the 1950s and early 1960s. A gap-filling title in Elmslie's expansive oeuvre. 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 with only slightest rubbing, spotting to front cover; minute rubbing and scuffs to back cover; lightest shelf-wear throughout. Very Fine. [Item #2943]
