My, my.. Once again, I must have 'too much' to say on this subject b/c my full review is too long for here. SO, if you want to read the whole damned thing go here: http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/3...

Incredible document, covering the literary revolution of the 60's, from d.a. levy to the lower east side mimeo explosion, includes photos of covers and select pages from the sources, Granary Books delivers a grand slam here. Was originally published to coincide with a show at the NY Public Library, this book is especially crucial for folks who either weren't born yet, or who languished in the sticks during the 60's. As always with Granary Books, the production is superb.

Great overview of avant-garde and underground poetry magazines from the 1950's to the 1980's, including photographs of the covers of rare materials much too obscure and expensive to get ahold of.
