Item #448 Post-Natal Trash: Book One of Caned Out, The Official Autobiography. Richard Meltzer.

Post-Natal Trash: Book One of Caned Out, The Official Autobiography

Los Angeles: Illuminati, 1984. First edition. Original Wraps. An uncommon book by the legendary rock critic, musician, Blue Öyster Cult lyricist, and student of Allan Kaprow. 22 pp. Printed wraps, as issued. A remarkably nice copy, with just some slight toning to the wraps and a very small dent on the fore-edge, affecting the back cover and last two pages. Overall very fresh and scarce thus. In an interview in 2000 with Scott Woods, Meltzer described this period in his life as a time when he began to get more serious about his writing: "I'd say the next thing that affected me was about '84 or so, I was in my late thirties, and I started READING, I never used to read... the idea of, I oughta take my time and come up with a prose; the time had come for me to really think about my narrative voice, think about a prose that is my own." The introduction states that the text was written in 1970; the photographs to be used were lost and Meltzer describes them in boxes where they would have been situated in the text. Near Fine.
