About This Item

2003. Hardcover. Fine. 8vo (24 cm), 12, 238 pp. Publisher's cloth and dust jacket. From the blurb: "The memoirs of Robert Wilson, owner of the legendary Phoenix Book Shop, is a fascinating and humorous account of how he, between 1962 and 1988, transformed a small, obscure book shop into a world-famous literary haven. The author writes of his long friendships with some of the literary giants of the 20th century, such as Marianne Moore, and W.H. Auden, and provides mini-biographies of many famous "Beat Generation" poets, including Allen Ginsberg, Diane Di Prima, Gregory Corso and Michael McClure. This work also contains a previously unpublished routine by William S. Burroughs. Illustrated with dozens of photographs from the author's private collection, showing celebrated authors and poets from this exciting era in literary history."
