Blast from the Past

Austin: Skanky Possum Press, 2000. Front and back cover portraits by Ken Tisa. Perfect-bound in glossy pictorial wraps, 8vo, 87 pp. Kenward's reading copy with annotations in Elmslie’s hand and tipped-in slips sequencing a reading order. We suspect this copy was used in preparation for a reading with Bill Berkson at the St. Marks Poetry Project on October 17, 2001. The most heavily annotated work in the book is “Fifties Probe,” which Elmslie in a letter written earlier that month to Lucia Berlin references as the centerpiece of his reading, calling it “my Ashbery Roast cut a tad” (Livingston, Love, Loosha, p. 171). Very good. Item #1073
