By Walta Boranski, Edited by Michael Bronski and Philip Clark

"The poems are truthful, snappy, plenty of low life & local detail, sparky mind of the young poet sassing & observing his environment, gay & grim, still romantic. Who doesn't love romance? Lots of intelligence in the line, mindful measure of spoken speech music." -Allen Ginsberg


"This collection of plainspoken, verbal snapshots suggests an autobiographical photo album. Here is one gay man's life: memories of high school, all kinds of lust, domestic love, the company of pets, the pleasures of music, books and movies, as well as anger, grief, illness and death. Walta Borawski could be as witty and sly as Frank O'Hara, but he was wiser, more passionate, naked and liberated. The poems he left behind are a gift. Philip Clark and Michael Bronski have done an invaluable job bringing his work together and sharing it with us." -Christopher Bram, author of Gods and Monsters and Eminent Outlaws: Gay Writers Who Changed America
