Autobiography. This collection of James Koller's writings from and about the 1960's in northern California presents a view of that time and place through prose, poetry, and a long excerpt from an unpublished novel. Involved in writer's and poet's circles, Koller came to know San Francisco poets Philip Whalen, Lew Welch, Gary Snyder, and Robert Creeley, participating in readings and in the Berkeley Poetry Conference. Koller's intent is to show how the intersections of historical fact, memory, and a writer's work can influence the current perception of times past. Includes eight photos of the period.
