2. There was a surfeit of avant-garde writing. Much of it came from Disch. Would piss anybody off.
3. Really looking forward to the new material.
: Sorry about the spam - beyond my control. In

: I thought Disch's review pretty silly
: myself. Perhaps, at the time of writing
: there was a surfeit of avante guarde writing
: and it pissed him off.
: On other news, I have been contacted by
: Helen Bar Lev, the woman with whom
: Whittemore lived whilst he was in Jerusalem.
: We've been having an interesting
: communication on the type of person he was.
: She has sent me some poems she wrote about
: him and will also contribute some sketches
: and paintings of the man as well. Look to
: see them soon. The poems provide some
: insight into Whittemore,the person.
