The story of my teeth by Valeria Luiselli( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustavo 'Highway' Sanchez Sanchez is a late-in-life world traveler, yarn spinner, collector, and legendary auctioneer. His most precious possessions are the teeth of the 'Notorious Infamous' like Plato, Petrarch, Chesterton, and Virginia Woolf. Written in collaboration with the workers at a juice factory, 'The story of my teeth' is an elegant, witty, exhilarating romp through the industrial suburbs of Mexico City and Luiselli's own literary influences and a meditation on, as Highway says, 'the variable value' of art"--Quatrième de couverture

Joe : a memoir of Joe Brainard by Ron Padgett( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket

"Ted and Sandy Berrigan's Honeymoon ended when her father, a well-connected doctor, forced Sandy into a mental hospital, had Ted run out of town by the sheriff, and hired private detectives to investigate his friends. These intimate, irresistible letters, written over the course of their three-month separation, read like a passionate, epistolary novel--full of longing, intrigue, and gossip. They also offer serious advice for developing readers and writers, bring the thriving cultural scene in mid-twentieth-century New York to life, and serve as a day-by-day chronicle of Ted Berrigan's developing voice"--Page 4 of cover

The border : poem & drawings by Tom Clark( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poem describes a group of poor men in Veracruz who "put on a show for the rich"--John Gay's The Beggar's Opera -- a play which transforms into a procession of six thousand ailing men in 350 boats. They are "fired on by war parties of Indian stragglers, old hoboes and red-satin vamps in Dracula sweatshirts" and the air of desperation informs the audience that they are crossing the border. The "movie" of the second half describes a dying courtesan in Paris, who travels or has traveled to sublime places such as Peking, the Himalayas, Nepal, Mauna Loa, Tasmania and Victoria Falls, again to cross a border
