The Tower of Babel Jack Spicer

Published by Talisman House,Jersey City, 1994, 170 pages, 14 × 21.3 cm, English

Price: €14

An established writer from an Eastern college returning to his former San Francisco haunts becomes entangled in a labyrinthine series of events that culminate in the sudden violent death of a respected poet. Described by Lewis Ellingham and Kevin Killian as “a satiric look at the private world of poetry gone public in the wake of the Six Gallery HOWL reading of October, 1955,” The Tower of Babel includes finely detailed sketches of the San Francisco poetry world and gay life as they existed then.

Jack Spicer (January 30, 1925 – August 17, 1965) was an American poet often identified with the San Francisco Renaissance. In 2009, My Vocabulary Did This to Me: The Collected Poetry of Jack Spicer won the American Book Award for poetry. He spent most of his writing-life in San Francisco

Eleanora Antinova Plays Eleanor Antin

Published by Sun & Moon Press, Los Angeles, 1994, 254 pages (b/w ill.), 12.7 × 19 cm, English

Price: €10 (Out of stock)

Internationally noted performance artist Eleanor Antin presents here the texts of four arresting works: Before the Revolution, Recollections of My Life with Diaghilev, Who Cares About a Ballerina, and Help, I’m in Seattle. These sharply satirical and occasionally nostalgic works focus on Antin’s character Eleanora Antinova, a ballerina of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. Eleanora Antinova is presented as a lost modernist heroine reminiscing about her days at the center of the radical art and classical ballet worlds.
