So no doubt, I returned two weeks after the fact and read for her two classes.
Where it counts something primal and reptile mind let me know this was an oversight, yet I was just too damn inquisitive to know more about Lady Postmodern and what London Escort genuinely was about. I figured the scholastic blarney language and posturing was only a part, and I needed to see under that cover. I was the sort of fellow constantly after the revolting truth, since then I could compose twelve sonnets about it. I was in the produce mode. That is the thing that my distributer let me know: "Produce, man, produce, get sufficiently out for another accumulation and watch the cash come coming in!"
Is it safe to say that it was truly about the cash? Where did the craftsmanship element in, the "fuck notoriety and wealth" mentality the vast majority of the little squeeze writers had?

I was advised authorities were at that point beginning to value them and some of my marked chapbooks of yesteryear were getting upward to $100. I'd had one person drop by my place, just before Ugly Girls began moving, and pay me $500 for marked duplicates of all my chapbooks, giving up my own duplicates. I required the cash terrible at the time: I had a liquor dependence on medical attendant.
