The Vermont Notebook
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

Poetry by John Ashbery with over 50 ink drawings by Joe Brainard; originally published by Black Sparrow Press in 1975. Offset, bound in printed wrappers.
