2006 wrote: Patchen being among, if not, my favorite author, I was very happy to see this obscure work tucked away in the basement shelves of my new school's library. Another of his works digested and well-taken. He has an amazing way to create an entire story with a single phrase. His pictures, seem to have started abstract expressionism and his poetry inspired the beats. He is the father of modern art in my realm. Another genius.
When I had read Patchen's work before, I found it just to out in his own world of metaphors, a little too silly maybe without enough else to really ground it. I feel like I need to explore him more after checking out this book though. It's amazing. The visual element gives me more to hold onto. The text and the images match so well.
