A poignant introduction by Lewis Warsh sets the stage for this fascinating look at the inner workings of the literary underground as seen through the pub- lications of one poet at its epicenter. More than a mere checklist, this book is peppered with anecdotes from many of Ted’s friends and publishers, including Anne Waldman and Ron Padgett. Illustrated in color and black-and-white with twenty-seven previously unpublished collaborations by Berrigan and painter George Schneeman made in the late sixties.
