Back in No Time by Brion Gysin

Book Description

Brion Gysin (1916 1986) was a visual artist, historian, novelist, and an experimental poet credited with the discovery of the cut-up technique -- a collage of texts, not pictures -- which his longtime collaborator William S. Burroughs put to more extensive use. He is also considered one of the early innovators of sound poetry, which he defines as getting poetry back off the page and into performance. Back in No Time gathers materials from the entire Gysin oeuvre: scholarly historical study, baroque fiction, permutated and cut-up poetry, unsettling memoir, selections from The Process and The Last Museum, and his unproduced screenplay of Burroughs novel Naked Lunch. In addition, the Reader contains complete texts of several Gysin pieces that are difficult to find, including Poem of Poems, The Pipes of Pan, and A Quick Trip to Alamut. "
