Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Bringing together the best poems from Ayres's early verse (much of it written in houses of ill fame) to his erotic and darkly imaginative later pieces, this stunning collection also features his previously unpublished experiences with luminary legends such as Tennessee Williams, Allen Ginsberg, Yoko Ono, Edmund White and Quentin Crisp. More than a book, PRIVATE PARTS is an experience of teen angst, hangovers for breakfast and raw enlightenment tripping over that cliff's edge in the rye. It would not exist if Ayres were not a survivor. Ayres's crusty accounts of a boy's life on the wild side explores the extreme boundaries of human behavior and amorality, offering a journey through his life from his early years in houses of ill repute to his life in Paris today.

Product Description: The first volume of the "Van Gogh's Ear" anthology series primarily focuses on poetry characterized by experimentation with form, a revitalized interest in the lyric, and journeys into daring realms of imagination. Among the book's many highlights are Joyce Carol Oates's intense prose poem of sex and murder "Erotic Fantasy in Fast Forward"; Victor Bockris's haunting, prophetic poem "New York City Footsteps" - written just five days before 9/11; Susan Howe's "The Chair", which achieves a rare synthesis of linguistic rigor and humor; "Labor: A company job", the last poem John Wieners ever wrote (included is a letter by him - in his writing - about the poem); plus Rod Smith's "Junkspace Canto", a canto as tremblingly accurate as the jab of a needle, with perceptions wound into a jagged sweet music like a gypsy violin...read more
