Summary Editor Elizabeth Zuba has selected collage works by Johnson that span the many stages of work in his almost forty years of friendship with Wilson "ordered not by chronology, but by their own morphogenetic correspondence" and paired with short, perspicacious excerpts of texts by Wilson. These juxtapositions do not explicate or illustrate; rather, they form a loose collage-like letter of works and writings that allow the reader to put the pieces together, to respond, and to add and return to the way Johnson required of his correspondents and fellow travelers.
Note Includes biographies, index of texts by William S. Wilson (pages 78-79), and index of works by Ray Johnson (pages 80-83).
