My vocabulary did this to me : the collected poetry of Jack Spicer by Jack Spicer( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 518 libraries worldwide
"While the first part of this edition, 1945-1956, doesn't include every poem he wrote at this time, our aim has been to make a judicious selection of single poems from One Night Stand [1980] and from notebooks and manuscripts in order to provide something more than an adequate sense of Spicer's first decade of writing. Therefore this edition is not a 'complete' but a 'collected' poems. ... The second part of this book gathers a more complete picture of the second half of Spicer's writing life. ... It is our aim in this volume to present a comprehensive edition of Spicer's work from 1945-1965 and to establish a fair text of his major poems, creating, in effect, his first collected poems to function as a standard reading edition."--"About this edition," p.xxviii-xxx
Poet be like God : Jack Spicer and the San Francisco renaissance by Lewis Ellingham( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 436 libraries worldwide
"Jack Spicer, unlike his contemporaries Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Gary Snyder, was a poet who disdained publishing and relished his role as a social outcast. He died in 1965 virtually unrecognized, yet in the following years his work and thought have attracted and intrigued an international audience. Now this comprehensive biography gives a pivotal poet his due. Based on interviews with scores of Spicer's contemporaries, Poet Be Like God details the most intimate aspects of Spicer's life - his family, his friends, his lover - illuminating not only the man but also many of his poems." "The resultant narrative of the San Francisco Renaissance and the emergence of the North Beach gay scene during the 50s and 60s will be indispensable reading for students of American literature and gay studies."--Jacket
Not nothing : selected writings by Ray Johnson, 1954-1994 by Ray Johnson( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 190 libraries worldwide
"Ray Johnson, considered the progenitor of Correspondence art, blurred the boundaries between life and art, authorship and intimacy. The defining nature of his work were his letters (often both visual and textual in character), intended to be received, replied to (altered and embellished) and read, again and again. This lovingly curated collection of more than 200 mostly previously unpublished writings - including selected letters, minutes for "New York Correspondence School" meetings, hand-written notes and other writings - opens a new view into the whirling flux of Johnson's art, highlighting his keen sense of play as well as his attuned sensitivity to both language and the shifting nature of meaning. Cumulatively, the writings reveal not only how he created relationships, glyphs and puzzles by connecting words, phrases, people and ideas, but also something about the elusive Johnson himself"--The publisher

2500 random things about me too by Matias Viegener( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide
"On February 6 2009, Matias Viegener logged into Facebook and wrote a short list of random things about himself. He had been tagged in a friend's meme, "25 Random Things About Me," and though it irked him, he decided to respond. The meme's premise was simple: Write 25 unrelated facts about yourself, then ask 25 friends to compose their own list ... The 100 lists assembled in 2500 Random Things About Me Too set out to do just that, exploring along the way the relationships between family, memory, sexuality, social networks, and randomness--on and offline ... Neither memoir nor diary but with aspects of each, 2500 Random Things About Me Too recalls the work of Joe Brainard and John Cage. It is an experiment in the construction of identity in a Facebook-drenched world of self-manufacturing and short attention spans. Possibly the first book to have been composed entirely on Facebook, 2500 Random Things About Me Too is a text-cloud raining art, dogs, sex, death and fruit."--Publisher information

The reader will discover classic New Narrative texts, from Robert Glück to Kathy Acker, as well as rare supplemental materials, incluing period interviews, essays, and talks, which form a new map of late 20th century creative rebellion."--from back cover
