Beat Book by Anne Waldman
Book DescriptionThe Beat movement exploded into American culture in the early 1950s with the force of prophecy. Not just another literary school, it was an artistic and social revolution. William S. Burroughs proclaimed that the Beat writers were "real architects of change. There is no doubt that we're living in a freer America as a result of the Beat literary movement, which is an important part of the larger picture of cultural and political change in this country during the last forty years, when a four-letter word couldn't appear on the printed page and minority rights were ridiculous." Anne Waldman, a renowned poet and longtime friend of many of these writers, has gathered in this volume a range of the best and most exemplary writings of the Beat poets and novelists. Selections from the Beat classics appear, as well as more recent prose and poetry demonstrating the continued vitality of the Beat experiment. Included are short biographies of the contributors, an extensive bibliography of Beat literature, and a unique guide to "Beat places" around the world--from Kerouac's hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts, where his novel "Dr. Sax "takes place, to Tangier, where Burroughs wrote parts of "Naked Lunch.

Dream Book of Fez, Paperback / softback (March 2016)
No. 10, Anne Waldman's Dream Book of Fez, is a musical genome, the architecture of a landscape between language and beyond it. In the photopoetic distance between the tomb and womb of Waldman's "invisible family" we brush up against the fabric of unconsciousness and hear the spectral voice of Jean Genet say: "dreaming is nursed in darkness."
