This book is interesting, although a little rough. First published in 1991, It's basically two parts: half poetry, and half a long-form interview, all written in 1987.

I liked this one a lot. It's early stuff compared to most of his work that I've read, and the copy I had included a lengthy interview I enjoyed as much as the rest of the book.

Sadly, I know exactly how he (at least his poet persona) feels.
