The Basketball Article.

Angel Hair Books, [1975]. Item #821

Side-stapled wrappers. This is from the first edition of 100 copies (a second edition was published in 1978). WIth an explanatory note by Waldman: "Bernadette Mayer and I actually got a 'kill fee' from OUI magazine for The Basketball Article, our first foray (and last?) into the interstices of power-journalism. I remember we wore scarves and berets and long boots for the games, looking decidedly bohemian as we sat taking notes at the edge of the ballcourt. Bernadette always carried along a copy of Shakespeare's Sonnets." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 605) Dampstained front and back along lower portion of spine extending to bottom edge, minor toning at extremities; a clean presentable copy with sharp corners, interior fine.
