by John Ashbery, Joe Brainard
"This is John Ashbery at his wacky best, from long lists that seem to make some sense, to short lists that seem to make no sense, to made-up diary entries. Here we find Joe Brainard's Americana... there's a wonderful, nutty innocence to this book that is found in Brainard's drawings and Ashbery's writing: 'his lips spell out the words: shale, cowturds, spread, udder, mumps.' '' - John Yau
"Touched with genius." - Peter Schjeldahl
