TRANSLATIONS FROM THE FAR COUNTRY: Selected Poetry and Fragments by Angus MacLise
A collection of written work by the poet and countercultural icon, drawn from his vast archive and presented in a classic paperback format. MacLise was a writer, calligrapher, musician and polymath, a dealer in Nepalese rice paper and the first drummer of the Velvet Underground.
