This could be my book of the year. I've read 'I remember' loads of times and there's always something new that crops up. This collection brings together many more pieces of writing, all so simple but so clear. They make you stop and think.

An artist associated with the New York School of poets, Joe Brainard (1942-1994) was a wonderful writer whose one-of-a-kind autobiographical work "I Remember" has had a wide and growing influence. It is joined in this major new retrospective with many other pieces that for the first time present the full range of Brainard's writing in all its deadpan wit, madcap inventiveness, self-revealing frankness, and generosity of spirit, gathering intimate journals, jottings, stories, one-liners, comic strips, mini-essays, and short plays, many of them available until now only as expensive rarities, if at all. "Brainard disarms us with the seemingly tossed- off, spontaneous nature of his writing and his stubborn refusal to accede to the pieties of self-importance," writes Paul Auster in the introduction to this collection. "These little works . . . are not really about anything so much as what it means to be young, that hopeful, anarchic time when all horizons are open to us and the future appears to be without limits." Assembled by the author's longtime friend and biographer Ron Padgett and including fourteen previously unpublished works.

But that's only about 130 pages of the book. The rest of it? Well, it's a book with writing that sometimes reminds you of Gertrude Stein, or, like SEINFELD was a TV show about 'nothing,' this is a book about the same thing. Disjointed journals, very short nonsensical stories and scrawled drawings and cartoons, a few of them obscene. Brainard was a multimedia artist and writer who never seemed to quite focus, ya know? He had a lot of friends, some straight, some gay, and he often laments the predicament that being gay was back in those unliberated 70s. And he admits his own feelings of awkwardness and other-ness, and even gets specific enough (although he seems embarrassed to be writing about it) to admit that he dislikes anal sex.
Joe Brainard seemed like a kind of pathetic hanger-on in the art world to me, and the book - once you got past I REMEMBER - was only mildly interesting and often downright boring. Maybe if you knew Brainard, it would be a lot more interesting. But I didn't, so ... ( )
