The Notebooks of David Ignatow
Swallow Press, 1973 - 375 pages
Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. ." . . not from the schools but from such a man as Mr. Ignatow, to whom language is like his skin, must we look for those innovations which will set us upon our feet in our writing"--William Carlos Williams. "His style shifted from realism through surrealism, to lyricism and myth--all in his quirky city tongue--but all of it bread for the living" --Harvey Shapiro.
