Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.4 MB
Overview: Hunter often said Harrell was the best copy editor he’d ever worked with» (William McKeen, Outlaw Journalist). But what was the rest of the story?Keep This Quiet! captures the fear and loathing, charm and romance of Hunter in the late Sixties – along with tales of two other underground authors. Included are iconic, funny, sometimes desperate letters he sent Margaret during and after the publication of Hell’s Angels. Also, priceless reminiscences of some of his oldest friends: William Kennedy, David Pierce, Rosalie Sorrels, and editor Jim Silberman – covered in no other account. Featured in addition are Belgian “poète maudit” Jan Mensaert and Greenwich Village “poet genius” Milton Klonsky. Also in his own words, Hunter’s sidekick Oscar Acosta and The Realist founder, Paul Krassner. Most of all, however, is this extra, previously hidden look into Hunter at Random House.
