Old friends and veterans of Manhattan's late 70s downtown scene, writer and editor Glenn O'Brien and artist and collector Richard Prince share a love of the surface flotsam of American life--"we are both PhDs in American shtick," as O'Brien puts it. This beautifully bound, slip-cased volume marks their first collaboration, setting O'Brien's sparse verse alongside Prince's equally reduced black blobs in a mutual vocabulary of simplicity and humor of gesture.
