We Walk Straight So You Better Get Out The Way, Denis Hirson : book review

Volume 33, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0376-8902



The origins of Denis Hirson's two volumes of recollections date back to 1970, when the American artist and writer Joe Brainard (1941-94) published a short collection, in the innovative Angel Hair chapbook series. Over the next few years Brainard added to and reordered this work until in 1975 it reached its final form, a book comprising a thousand-plus short entries, each beginning with the phrase "I remember," memories (mostly) from Brainard's childhood and young adulthood in the 1940s and 50s.
