Here in one volume is the full range of Joe Brainard's writing in all its deadpan wit, effortless inventiveness, personal candor, and generosity of spirit: the complete text of I Remember, along with an unprecedented gathering of intimate journals, stories, poems, travel diaries, one-liners, comic strips, mini-essays, and short plays, many of them until now available only in expensive rare editions. Using apparently simple means to achieve complex and surprising effects, these works give the most commonplace experiences a fresh and unexpected charm. 'Brainard disarms us with the seemingly tossed-off, spontaneous nature of his writing, ans his stubborn refusal to accede to the pieties of self-importance,' writes Paul Auster in his 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.'
