In 1974, Glen Baxter was invited by Larry Fagin and Ron Padgett at the Poetry Project in New York to read from his collected works at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery, his "collected works" at that time consisting of 'The Falls Tracer' published by Tetrad Press, 'The Khaki' published by Adventures in Poetry, and some pieces that had appeared in Anne Waldman's 'The World'. Shortly after the reading, Larry Fagin and Glen Baxter made the journey up to see Clark Coolidge at his house near the old Shaker village at Hancock, Massachusetts. This was to be the first of many visits by Baxter to the Coolidge house, one of which, in 1982, marked the beginning of the collaboration published here for the first time. Baxter had always envisaged the text would be illustrated but it was not until Tony Ward of Arc encouraged him to complete the project that he set about creating the series of drawings that run throughout this book.

Wrong description for the book
30 May 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
amazon's description is clearly not the book listed. The author is different and the subject matter and general type of work is nothing that either the illustrator or the author of the book in the picture would have anything to do with. By the way, if you go to the page where you can "help" with the listing, there is no possible place to state the very simple fact that you have described the WRONG ------- BOOK.
