The Crazy Green of Second Avenue
Foreword by Seymour Krim / Preface by Frank O'Hara
New edition of Erje Ayden's 1965 underground cult classic novel.
"I recommend his book to you as something both hip and precious."
"Through Ayden's eyes we see an 'Amerika' as odd as Kafka's, as funny, as absurdly sad."
"Ayden presents a brazen, bizarre, and, best of all, original picture of pathos."
Tampa Bay Times, August 8, 1992
"A moving study of a lonely man who is forever flowing upstream. It is the nightmare of the human animal."
The San Francisco Examiner, July 28, 1968
