The Moon Food Cafe Paperback – June 6, 2013
About the Author
In the Sixties, William Hageman edited two issues of a poetry magazine, "The Willie", out of San Francisco. During this time he became a marginal player in the Mimeo Revolution. His poems were published in a few dozen small press magazines. He authored two chapbooks, "The Cockroach Hotel", with introductions by Doug Blazek and Charles Bukowski, and "Stubble Poems". He recently wrote a short memoir about Bukowski, “A Night with Buk and Dave”. Hageman (as "Willie") appears in a short story by Bukowski, "Beer and Poets Talk", in the collection "Tales of Ordinary Madness". During his travels in France and Holland in the Seventies and Eighties, Hageman began writing "The Moon Food Cafe". After moving to Victoria, British Columbia, he extracted the middle section of the book and reworked it to become "Living in the O", published in 2012. Hageman moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1989. In 1994 he began mailing samizdats to various media personalities in response to the Neo-Liberal extremism of the state government and, subsequently, the federal government. In 1999, the samizdat became a website, "Scum at the Top", and later a blog, "Bilegrip". In 2004, Hageman resumed work on "The Moon Food Cafe", redeveloping it as a sequel to "Living in the O". A third part, "Journal of an Insect Living in Excrement", is in progress.
