Summary
"This is Ron Padgett's memoir - the unlikely and true story of two childhood friends, one straight and one gay, who grew up in 1950s Oklahoma, surprised their families by moving to New York City in search of art and poetry, and became part of a dynamic community of artists and writers whose work continues to shape American culture." "Much of this intimate memoir is told in Joe Brainard's own direct and unforgettable voice. Dozens of letters, journal entries, poems, photographs, and artworks create a stirring portrait of the times - one that illuminates not only Brainard's life and art, but also the lives and work of his many friends, including Frank O'Hara, Alex Katz, Anne Waldman, Ted Berrigan, Fairfield Porter, Edwin Denby, Rudy Burckhardt, and Kenward Elmslie." --Book Jacket
