Herbert Huncke Reader
The pic is the cover of Herbert Huncke’s book. I was in the Mission Viejo public library bookstore in Southerm California (I only lived a block from there) when I was amazed to find the book. How did this get here? It is apparently some kind of preliminary edition of Huncke’s book, which the publisher must have donated to the library. I bought it for a couple of bucks. I had lost touch and assumed he must have died long ago, and was very disappointed to learn that he had died only a year earlier, and now I was too late.
