The Compleat Memoirrhoids: 137.n

Rate this book
"[Katz] reprises the pleasure of everything he has ever written, and yet it is utterly singular. No one who cares about America's literary and art scene in the sixties should fail to read it."—R. M. Berry, author of Frank

Employing the "fine structure constant" that has tantalized physicists for decades, celebrated novelist Steve Katz conjures his life story from 137 discreet, shuffled memories of art, travels, reflections, and confusions. Here are sculpture and teepees, Western mountains, Eastern pilgrimages and, throughout, artists' lives: Kathy Acker, Philip Glass, Vladimir Nabokov, Richard Serra, and a catalog of others Katz knows and knew.
