Nude meditation sessions . Nude Weddings ..Box [ ] ..Leave Message" and a simpatico quote from Bakunin).      50.00

Serpentfoot's "Bad News Gospel" is a work in progress, unclear if this "story of" is It, or is Not It Yet, and merely a herald of coming good. In any case, the booklet in hand is a clutter of 1970s news clippings, and typescript, and snippets of --word-processor?-- printed text, with handwritten explication in the margins dated as recently as 1996, all xeroxed together. The envelope in which everything arrived is postmarked 1998. Serpentfoot, "prophet of the Church of Carnal Knowledge," is still alive & kicking; this cataloguer donated (went fishing with) a personal check a few months ago, hoping she had gotten a little farther on in the promised Gospel (I guess I was hoping for something a thousand pages long bound in morocco) and she cashed in, immediately . . You could probably get your own copy by sending a lot less than fifty bucks to Coosa Georgia general delivery, but whatever. Texts include some quite captivating autobiography with 2 blurry photos : "Before" (1972, honoring her under her birth name when a young poet, Georgia governor Jimmy Carter in attendance) --and "After" ("made during the year she lived as a hermit"). Hard to pin down her religion, it has a lot in common with freethought Sample quotes : ".. I have failed 7 times as a wife ..a poor mother, a disgrace to my family .. an atheist .. had tried numerous jobs and occupations ..I was an alcoholic, a chain smoker, a dependent on drugs, a spendthrift, and a glutton that got up to 215 pounds! But I was so filled with enthusiasm.. I was such a believer in Good News!" --and, in a nutshell, good news tends to fatal complacency . . Expect some not-very-original America-worship accompanied by a not-terribly-virulent antisemitism, a by-product of her startling abreaction to Christianity.

Swedenborgian girlhoods mostly, with adult confirmations of doctrine, rather than adult intellectual conversion. A little dull but then it's hard to speak entertainingly of the protestant experience of faith, and harder still to speak of these matters with cogency that approaches that of Swedenborg himself.

 Bland and sad, except that she made enough money to self-publish. Smith wanted to be a writer, wound up in Hollywood as "executive secretary to Maxwell Arnow, director of talent and casting for Columbia picutes" &c &c. Apparently a (spiritual) dead-end, although she has friends in the biz: blurbed with sympathetic phoney enthusiasm by William Holden, Kim Novak (Smith, Kim says, "helped me to get started in my career"), Jack Lemmon (he promises to give a copy of Smith's book to his mother-in-law), and Ginger Rogers.

 "I have reconstructed," says Solinger, "the career of one abortionist, Ruth Barnett, who practiced in Portland, Oregon, from 1918 until 1968.

Wade, it was the law" --the law in this case making crucial exploitations, by politicians, police and the press, possible and very profitable.

 Flip side of "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden," which was a true-life romance and success story about young inmates of Chestnut Lodge. Chestnut Lodge in Judith Beck Stein's world is, instead, a "psychiatric, experimental dirty-trick prison." Urban legend has it that (for instance) when a CIA officer has problems, that's where he gets shrunk. We know for certain (no secret) that Allen Dulles' son was in therapy at the Lodge after a Korean War head injury. What else happens, we can't know, except for reports such as the one at hand. But it is surely significant that Roy Grinker was its head for a number of years, he spent WWII in North Africa trying to figure out ways to get the Yossarians back into the air after they had gotten tired of flying against the Luftwaffe; Grinker was a Drug Doctor, boasted of it in a widely-published memoir, "Men Under Stress." We might better assess Judith Stein's trustworthyness with an analysis of the documents, which purport to show that the Watergate burglars were paid out of her hijacked bank accounts, and with which this cataloguer cannot cope. Stein was a daughter of the rich, a Beck of Beck Oil, and she interested herself in civil rights activism in the early 60s; but after a breakdown (engineered by her seniors amongst the conservative rich? ..or maybe just postpartum depression) she woke up to recognize America's genocidal plans for world- and individual-domination. Hm. Go on.  Stein was trained as a journalist, she writes well, she is definitely nuts, and --unusual for any outsider writer-- has enough money to be privy to a lot of inside dope. Seems not afraid of slander suits, guess she's confident she'll be ignored. Author photo on back wrap is really grim : Judith. Judith. PLEASE don't try to smile for the camera.

A very close reading, and also an examination of the transcripts for evidence of transcriber's changes in the literal record, apparently without any purpose of "cover-up," done rather with a clerical eye to orthodoxy and literary coherence. Sample of Sullivan's prose, which is orthodox Grad Student: "In these responses, Joan showed a new willingness to discuss the physical appearance of the voices. Earlier she had refused to provide details about their hair, clothes, and rings and had responded to the clerics' questions about these details by insisting upon the identification of these voices as saints and angels... Now, however, in providing a physical description of the voices, she consented to the clerics' demand and portrayed ..the empirical perception without the emotion attached to the perception. By informing the clerics of the minuteness and the multiplicity of the voices without attempting to make sense of what she was describing, Joan spoke like the ideal patient describing her symptoms to the physician. She provided the details of her symptoms without hazarding a diagnosis of her illness.." p.145.

 Portraits of young women, alone, in pairs and threes, usually full-length, a few torso & face only. Some are posed (and all are very much "posed") outdoors in bosky wood or freshet-laced dell, or indoors, amidst grand furniture and drapery.
 "Casa de cita" translates literally as meeting-house, but in the usage of the time, as bordello --specifically bordello in the French style. "Unlike the brothels of the lower orders, this was not somewhere [Vargas' English is stilted but clear] designed solely for the purpose of sexual transaction. Rather was it an elegant variation on the gentleman's club, where the nobility could, after dining quietly at home, drop by to meet friends and colleagues over a drink and a cigar. The men were meanwhile waited on by attractive, elegantly dressed young women, who would sing and play for them, and also provide a little discreet sex for those who desired it." --compiler Vargas rather gets into the spirit of the thing, she goes on in this vein at length, and learnedly. The plates themselves are from "stereoscopic positives on glass," which reproduce well; the prints are densely inked, detailed, subtle. A few poses suggest lesbian activity, these for male interest.

She plainly was a handler, not just a secretary, may have been a mistress (to judge by looks they are exchanging in certain photo ops).

"Buch's renown had two principal sources. She threw her energies into the series of strikes where Communists aided the hard-pressed textile workers. Passaic in 1926 and Gastonia in 1929 were Buch's baptism of fire, with arrests and persecution, glorious moments and great disappointments. Buch also became linked with Albert Weisbord, mercurial strike leader at Passaic. When the two broke the Communist Party in 1930 over differences of leadership and strategy, they resolved themselves to relative isolation and sectarian involvement. Buch recalls their life together with vividness and candor, offering a rare insight into one woman's place within the private sectors of the Communist movement." *Buhle 335.

Manners and marriages between northern and southern college students, summering or otherwise vacating at "Washington College, Lexington VA," said college presided over by ex-confederate Robert E.

 Evidently a vanity press publication, the new sort run up by formula on computer, and, if lacking knowledgeable input from the bankrolling author, slightly.. wrong.
 At any rate Elaine Winik is the kind of person you would like to like whole-heartedly. She met some fairly important people, went to significant places exhibiting everywhere her flair for life, and never never doubted the rightness of her friends.
