About This Book:

A definitive review of the creative output by "possibly the only significant African-American visual poet in all of the U.S." (Bob Grumman). Richard Kostelanetz writes in his intro: “Barely visible though Bill Keith’s poetry has been so far, mark my prediction that it will be reprinted for as long as anthologies of experimental and/or African-American writings are made.”
