Interviews with Gregory Corso

From Rick Schober

Hello Paul,

The Whole ShotI am writing to let you know of a book that I recently completed, The Whole Shot: Collected Interviews with Gregory Corso. I figured that you might find it of interest.

Advance reviews from eminent Beat literature scholars have praised the collection as “highly readable,” “a valuable contribution to our understanding of an original and vigorous poetic voice,” and “essential reading for anyone with an interest in Gregory Corso, the Beat Generation, or modern poetry.”

I’m trying to self-publish the book and recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds through pre-orders to help defray some of the costs (licensing fees, etc.).

Here’s a link to the project:

Additional information about the book can be found in the press release recently posted by Empty Mirror Books on their website:

I thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to pass this info along to any of your colleagues or students who you think might be interested.
