Snarky Rexroth

“When I first held Hamalian’s hardback in my hands, I wondered why there is a photo resembling a mug shot used on the book-jacket cover, a disheveled Kenneth Rexroth with a cigarette dangling from his lips. His unkempt appearance in the present age of outlawing cigarette smoke is already a turn-off for most readers.”
