"If any place of the past century spawned originals like a breeding box, it was Black Mountain College, and among its many illustrious graduates is one Jonathan Williams, poet, publisher, raconteur, and eclectic collector of like spirits. In this book, Williams has made the rounds and produced his inventory of poets, painters, writers and artists whose only commonality is their unequivocal distinction."
