Joe LeSueur Lived with Frank O'Hara from 1955 until 1965, the years when O'Hara wrote his greatest poems, including "To the Film Industry in Crisis," "In Memory of My Feelings," "Having a Coke with You," and the famous Lunch Poems--so called because O'Hara wrote them during his lunch break at the Museum of Modern Art, where he worked as a curator. The flowering of O'Hara's talent, cut short by a fatal car accident in 1966, produced some of the most exuberant, truly celebratory lyrics of the twentieth century. And it produced America's greatest poet of city life since Whitman. Alternating between O'Hara's poems and LeSueur's memory of the circumstances that inspired them, "Digressions on Some Poems by Frank O'Hara is a literary commentary like no other--an affectionate, no-holds-barred memoir of O'Hara and the New York that animated his work: friends, lovers, movies, paintings, streets, apartments, music, parties, and pickups. "The result," writes Langdon Hammer in "The New York Times Book Review, "is an annotated edition of the work--only it's gossip, not erudite references, that LeSueur has supplied ... restoring [O'Hara's] world in some of its blurry, lived detail." This is the most true-to-life account we will ever have of a quintessential American figure and his now-legendary times.
