>Happy Birthday Carl Solomon!

[Carl Solomon in his Prince Street apartment several years after residence with me on sixth floor ward, New York State Psychiatric Institute, afterwards working mid-town at his uncle’s Ace Books Publishers, where he edited Wm. S. Burroughs’ Junkie paperback first edition. New York, 1953.(Ginsberg caption) c. Allen Ginsberg Estate]

It’s pretty difficult to track down Solomon’s out of print books Mishaps Perhaps and More Mishaps, but we’ve seen copies of Emergency Messages on Amazon. Steve Silberman has posted two poems from Mishaps Perhaps to whet your appetites, and wikipedia have a pretty decent informative short bio for those wanting to know more about Solomon’s life>>
