The Hasty Papers: Millennium Edition edited by Alfred Leslie
This oh-so-New York collection is a blend of poetry, social critique, comedy and rock n’ roll. Our archival edition includes nearly 400 photographs, drawings and paintings, along with 5 plays (Aristophanes, John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, Terry Southern, Derek Walcott), 16 poems, Fidel Castro's famous 1960 United Nations speech, and much more. If you’re looking for something that pushes the boundaries of convention, The Hasty Papers won’t disappoint.
...this call to the unspecified revolution, is what makes The Hasty Papers a terribly fascinating read in historical and artistic terms.
– David Garza, The Austin Chronicle
Forty years on, it strikes me as an even more wonderful snapshot of a specific place and time in New York history.
– John Strausbaugh, New York Press
