A wonderful 90-minute reading--intimate and playful--by this leading figure of the New York School's "second generation." The event took place in Albee Social on 15 December 1982, only months before Berrigan's untimely death in July, 1983. The recording begins with a wide-reaching, exploratory introduction [nearly 20 minutes long] and includes a lovely translation of Heine and readings of many of the poems from his last book "A Certain Slant of Sunlight," published by O Books, Oakland, California, 1988.
