9780982664612: After the Orange Glow

Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. "Mark Spitzer has written a humping, yowling, spewing, browbeating memoir about his cumming crackling youth spent in Paris at George Whitman's Shakespeare and Co., a historic and histrionic wacky crash-pad bookstore where misguided and horny youth flop and fuck and color poetry while smoking hashish and drinking wine. AFTER THE ORANGE GLOW recounts how fuck buddies, perverted patrons, jaded poets and trustafarians distracted Spitzer from translating Genet's poetry and writing the Manifesto of his generation, and is a must must must read for anyone who gives a shit about poetry, the Beats, Paris, sex, drugs, and apparitions"—Elva Maxine Beach.
