TamTam Books salutes another grand publisher Ugly Duckling Presse for publishing and translating (by Michael Kasper) Gabriel Pomerand’s “Saint Ghetto of the Loans. It is a fantastic piece that mixes the everyday life of Saint Germain-des-Prés in a book length poem. Vian of course is mentioned. It is a great companion to the book I co-edited, ‘Manual of Saint Germain des Prés.”
I have footage of Pomerand reciting his Lettrist poetry – and it is pretty remarkable.
This is a painting by Pomerand.
This is some of the illustrations that are in the book. Do get it!
