For years the noted author and founded-publisher of Sun & Moon Press and Green Integer has been spurred by fellow writers and friends to write his memoirs. But Messerli argues that he does not have the sensibility to write only about his personal experiences, since his life has been primarily defined by cultural encounters - thus this annual collection of essays on these experiences as well as the hundreds of notable figures with whom he has had friendships and working relationships. The 2005 volume includes Paul Auster, Robert Creeley and John O'Keefe, among others.
