One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. In this recording, made in San Francisco in August 1969, Tom Veitch reads from his experimental novel “The Luis Armed Story”. Veitch, who is perhaps best known today as an author of graphic novels, including a couple based on George Lukas’ “Star Wars” series of movies, was during the 1960s and early 1970s a major player in the underground comics scene, as well as an author of experimental literature and poetry. “The Luis Armed Story”, written in 1965, and originally published in Germany, was considered an avant-garde masterpiece when it first appeared. It is a novel chronicling the “Armed family’s strange quest for spiritual salvation, cosmic truth and chili con carne across the Americas”.
