Editorial Reviews


"For anyone looking to tap into one of the the Beat Generation’s genuine poets here is the ideal opportunity." -- Brian Dalton, The Beat Scene

About the Author

Ted Joans describes himself as a “Jazz poet, thus a revolutionary poet,” a painter and a former trumpet player. Born in Cairo, Illinois, in 1928, of parents who worked an annual river-boat run on the Mississippi, he survived a precarious childhood (his father was pulled off a streetcar and killed by white workers in 1943 during the Detroit race riots) and went on to earn a B.A in Fine Arts from Indiana University. He then hit he road and has since lived in many parts of the world, from New York to Timbuktu. He resides, as a seasonal residence, in Vancouver. During the fifties he became associated with the Beat Generaion but his strongest influences are probably the surrealist André Breton, Langston Hughes and his muse Laura, whom he met in 1991 in Paris.

Laura Corsiglia was raised in northern British Columbia’s Nass Valley surrounded by grizzly bears. Her first art experiences were masks, dances, songs and totem poles of the Nisga’a indiginenous people for whom her parents worked. She later grew up in Victoria, BC, and now lives in Vancouver. Extensive travelling and an education at Paris Ecole National Superieure des Beaux-Arts added an international element to her respect for Bears in all forms. Her work has been exhibited all over the world, from Paris to London to New York to Seattle. She came to surrealism through the arts of the Pacific Northwest Coast.
