(Brautigan, Richard) Abbott, Keith.
Downstream From Trout Fishing in America: A Memoir.
A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. For 18 years, Keith Abbott was one of Brautigan's closest friends especially early on in Brautigan's writing career. Abbott paints a portrait of Richard Brautigan as a lovable and whimsical friend. Abbott explains the writer's dedication to the art of fiction and his quest to break beyond the pop culture, hippie label that haunted him until his suicide in1984. Brautigan's tight prose inspired authors such as Haruki Murakami, and his experimentation with the line won him accolades from authors like Ishmael Reed, Raymond Carver, and Michael McClure. His work is highly influential and Abbott draws a clear connection between Brautigan's life and his writing. This book is essential for anyone who is interested in the work of Richard Brautigan. As Raymond Carver wrote, "Truly the best thing I've ever seen written of the man."

Hank: The Life of Charles Bukowski.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Cherkovski reproduces many of his favorite Bukowski poems and little fragments of prose and then analyzes them insightfully in relation to the Bukowski's life.

Cherkovski's compassion and respect for his subject are almost heartwarmingly ever-present. He gives fans and nonfans alike another, if not totally different, picture of the great Bukowski.

(William Stafford) Ghalib [Khan, Mirza Asad Ullah].
Poems. Translated by Aijaz Ahmad, with William Stafford and Adrienne Rich.
A Very Good copy in yellow wraps; small sticker from the Asia Society afixed to the inside of front cover. Signed by poet William Stafford on the title page. This selection of Ghalib's ghazals shows the power of the Urdu poet's abstract writing in the poetic form that constitutes two lines of equal length that tend to emote a third dimsensonal effect. Ghalib [1797-1869] was the preeminent Indian Urdu and Persian-language poet during the last years of the Mughal Empire and is considered to be one of the most popular and influential poets of the Urdu language.

Alexie, Sherman.
First Indian on the Moon: Poems.
A Fine tight copy without dust jacket as issued. This is one of only 500 Hardcover copies issued. Working from a carefully developed understanding of his place in an oppressed culture, he focuses on the need to tear down obstacles before nature tears them down. Fire is therefore a central metaphor: a sister and brother-in-law killed, a burnt hand, cars aflame. Tongue in cheek, Alexie inserts images from popular songs and movies, and catalogues aspects of traditional reservation life that have been sacrificed in America's melting pot. Alexie renews the nearly forgotten sense of language equaling power. And the language in these sequential works is flawless, each section picking up from and expanding upon the previous one, poetry and prose working naturally together.

Alexie, Sherman.
One Stick Song: Poetry and Prose Poems.
A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. In this collection of poems and poem-tight prose pieces, Alexie targets lies and hypocrisy. He mocks the mealymouthed cant of the politically correct and, in a lashing poem titled "Open Books," the arrogance of a certain ilk of poet, then, elsewhere, tempers his rage with tenderness. His hard-hitting poems are loosely knit and suitable for performance, but his prose pieces are constructed as diabolically as barbed wire, especially the clever yet emotionally resonant essay "The Warriors," in which musings on baseball segue into thoughts on friendship and such frank disclosures as his confession that although television once had him convinced that white women were sexier than brown women, life taught him the truth about love.

The letters cover the personal as well as the topics of art and writing. 380 pages.
