The Collected Writings of Joe Brainard

The Collected Writings of Joe Brainard A Library of America Special Publication Brainard, Joe

Known during his life primarily as an artist associated with the New York School of poets, Joe Brainard (1942-1994) was also a wonderful writer whose one-of-a-kind autobiographical work I Remember ("a completely original book"--Edmund White) has had a wide and growing influence. It is joined in this major new retrospective with many other works that for the first time allow the full range of Brainard's writing to be savored in all its deadpan wit, nonstop goofy inventiveness, self-revealing frankness, and generosity of spirit. Collected Writings gathers journals, jottings, letters, stories, one-liners, comic books, mini-essays, and playlets, much of which exist in print only in expensive rarities, if at all, to create "one of the most dazzlingly minute autobiographies ever written" (Harper's Magazine). "Brainard disarms us with the seemingly tossed-off, spontaneous nature of his writing and his stubborn refusal to accede to the pieties of self-importance," writes Paul Auster in his introduction to this collection. Assembled by the author's longtime friend and biographer Ron Padgett and including fourteen never-before published works, here is a fresh and affordable way to rediscover a unique American artist.
