A hardcover book, collecting various short prose and poems from the former editor of Killer! (and Sonic Youth guitarist). Some of the longer texts include "On The Loose" (recollections of moving to NY in 1977-79), "In the Mind of the Bourgeois Reader" (deep artificial penetration) & "SonicXsmith" (a long, affectionate interview with Patti Smith recorded in Lowell, MA, 1995). A handful of way-early archival photographs are interspersed to totally get you in the mood. Looks & feels just right, an artifact in the making from Sudbury, MA's Water Row Press. Edited by Byron Coley. Afterword by Richard Meltzer. Preface by Lisa Crystal Carver. 112 pages, cloth bound.

2000 Book on Water Row Press





Limited edition version; 200 copies made, the same hardcover version of the book as the trade edition, in black embossed slip case, signed by the author. Each copy includes a bonus #'d sheet of poetry, "Punk poems for poets w/ penny". These are a series of 200 poems written exclusively for this limited printing, meaning each poem is only available in one copy of the edition. Each copy comes with an adhered Lincoln penny artifact (and additional signature).
