After Ted passed away I read this memoir, letter, poem book dedicated to
a kind & fine gentleman Ted Berrigan. The editors left out many of
my contempories Eleanor Nauen,Simon Pettet, Eileen Myles, Joel Lewis who
knew Ted in 1979-83 before he died. I saw him 3 nights
before he died and he was in the bathroom reading poems,talking
to Alice Notley his wife, it was a hot summer in NYC that year 1983.
