Bray County Wicklow, Ireland: Wild Honey Press, 2002. First Edition. Sewn Wrappers. "A few months ago, you surprised me, awake in the darkest night. Soundbites brought on the jitters, your sarcasm nonsensical rhymes. Beginning to find my way in the dark I imagined the headlines, interviews, headlines, reviews. We seem to live in only one room now, writing mainly for other voices. The tape recorder offers terrible loss and reminders of pleasures gone. All of it seems distant; stars are everywhere." (from "Sirens") A chapbook of titled prose-poetic fragments by Rupert M. Loydell, the London-born writer, editor, publisher & educator. Subtitled "ten haibun for David Toop (the noted English musician)" & with a list of sources following the "haibun," there is what we might call a cut-up quality & a Burroughsian atmosphere to these writings as in the quote above- Loydell has indeed edited a William S. Burroughs tribute-interview compilation (My Kind of Angel: i.m. William Burroughs, 1998). A beautiful little chapbook production in sewn wrappers produced in Ireland during January 2002 per copyright page. A very interesting Loydell collectible, in very fine condition with only a bit of rubbing to front, back covers & sewn spine; tiny bumps at corners of some page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3973]
