A reading by Jan Herman

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min
Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA

In a program that was recorded on Feb. 13, 1970, Jan Herman reads from the 5th issue of his magazine “San Francisco Earthquake.” The title of this particular issue was “VDRSVP.” The reading includes works by Sinclair Beiles, Carl Solomon, Carl Weissner, Annie Rooney, and Jan Herman, chosen at random, and read here as if they were all part of the same piece. Jan Herman was at the time a publisher of avant-garde literature, who in addition to his magazine, also brought to print various pamphlets by Dick Higgins, Liam O'Gallagher, and William S. Burroughs under the Nova Broadcasting imprint. This particular reading serves as a classic example of the sort of cut-up literary style that was championed by such writers as William S. Burroughs, and which was quite popular in the late 1960s and 1970s.
