Good Book Alert: Up Is Up But So Is Down

Up Is Up But So Is Down: New York's Downtown Literary Scene, 1974-1992 (NYU, 2006) is a must-have for anyone even vaguely interested in the constantly changing cultural landscape of NYC. There are all sorts of artifacts, essays, historical documents, eyewitness accounts and--for me--the best reason to buy the book: the afterward/interview between Eileen Myles and Dennis Cooper. I want to be like Eileen when I grow up.
