Jan Herman

THE Z COLLECTION shines a penetrating light on a score of countercultural and mainstream writers, among them William S. Burroughs, Norman Mailer, Nelson Algren, William Styron, Allen Ginsberg, and Paul Theroux. It makes them vividly present in ways you won’t find elsewhere. They sail into view propelled by invaluable insights and historic perspective. This “time capsule made of words” is full of literary surprises.”


— Heathcote Williams (Whale Nation, Shelley at Oxford and Of Dylan and His Deaths)
