Books Acquired Recently

Clay, Steven, and Rodney Phillips, eds. A Secret Location on the Lower East Side: Adventures in Writing, 1960-1980. New York: New York Public Library/Granary Books, 1998.

This is a book about the various mimeographed literary publications (periodicals and chapbooks) published in New York during the 1960s and 1970s. It is a mix of cover reproductions, excerpts, and reminisces by those involved in the production and writing of the publications. I have been fascinated by this era since I was in college so I am keen to read it! Both it and Sato’s book were bought from amazon.com’s network of independent booksellers.

Sato, Hiroaki, ed. Erotic Haiku. Japan: IBC, 2004.

I enjoy haiku anthologies and am especially fond of haiku about everyday physical experience, so when I heard about this anthology I thought it would be right down my alley. It has both Japanese and English versions of the poems. The publication information is in Japanese, which is why I am not sure about the city of publication.
