I Remember [Granary Books]
“I remember a backdrop of a brick wall I painted for a play. I painted each red brick in by hand. Afterwards it occurred to me that I could have just painted the whole thing red and put in the white lines.”
Originally published in 1971, Joe Brainard’s I Remember is still kind of a super amazing read.
This edition, first published in 2001 by Granary Books, comes with an afterword by Ron Padgett.
