The Reading Experience
A miscellany, the third in the series by Elihu Blotnick, exploring the nature of art and identity, this time between 1979 and the present. Included are six experimental short stories in varied voices, and sixteen essays on subjects as diverse as blindness, communicating with aliens, art, artists, art-gangs, visual languages, being a Una-bomber suspect, comix, and the evolution of the counter-culture. The 51 black and white photographs serve as illustrations and stand alone photo-essays.

A personal journey through a varied and evolving world by an imagist who helped create the cult of the counter-culture. Elihu Blotnick is also the author of Saltwater Flats (BBM Associates 1975), reviewed by the New York Times as “powerful and very personal images of contemporary America”.
