Neither of us can break the other's hold; poems for my father

Berkeley: Shameless Hussy Press, 1981. 71p., preface, letters, photos, very good first edition in pictorial wraps.

The poems concern the relationship/struggle between a Bay Area poet and his Jewish father from Arkansas who was a publicist, performer and playwright (he typed for O'Neill and assisted Sinclair Lewis on Elmer Gantry) The letters from the subject to his son concerning the poems are fascinating.
