Abstract:

"In or around 1977, Bernadette Mayer and Bill Berkson initiated a correspondence that eventually centered on question-and-answer exchanges usually folded inside accompanying cover letters. The candor and intensity of these epistolary interviews was sustained well into the mid 1980s. Included are intimate musings on everyday life, childhood, marriage, sex, poetry and other arts, cooking, weather, house-and-garden details, fashion, politics, philosophy, time, identity, morality, and much else besides. Although the exchanges have continued intermittently to this day, it is the bulk of that early, high-intensity phase that the present volume represents ... The title What's Your Idea of a Good Time? was the question that sparked the original project"--P. 7.
