Overview

Poetry, fiction, drama, essays, and interviews by George Hitchcock, a major American writer/editor of the 20th century.

Foreword by Philip Levine.

George Hitchcock was the outspoken editor/dictator of kayak, a literary magazine and press that introduced and influenced two generations of American writers and was, as Philip Levine notes in his Foreword, "ransacked with feverish anticipation."

Hitchcock is himself an accomplished writer, and One-Man Boat: The George Hitchcock Reader is an eclectic and lively anthology celebrating his colorful oeuvre—surreal, political, and found poems; provocative plays and short stories; candid interviews, reviews, and essays; and his (in)famous (and comically subversive) testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee, reprinted from the Congressional Record. ("That is a delightful question. Am I directed to answer it?")

Introduced by Philip Levine; illustrated by Hitchcock's notorious rejection slips; and including an in-the-trenches attack of kayak by Robert Bly (which Hitchcock solicited and published), One-Man Boat is proof positive that a life dedicated to the literary arts can be, in a word, bountiful.
