Joseph Bednarik, February 19, 2009 (view all comments by Joseph Bednarik)
This book is exquisitely seductive--a rich and evocative interplay of color portraits of writers and artists accompanied by Williams' idiosyncratic vignettes and recollections. From the imperious Kenneth Rexroth (backdropped by a soda-pop billboard) to little-known outsider artists from the American South, this homage to creative genius and genuine relationship is an absolute blessing. Williams, who founded and ran the publishing house Jargon Society, had an amazing ear for literary talent; he also had an amazing eye with a camera. His subjects are completely at ease in his presence. This book would be a welcome addition to every library, public and private, in the country.
