Prolific poet, award-winning translator, esteemed critic--"certainly the best poetry critic in sight," according to Lawrence Ferlinghetti--essayist and journalist, editor and novelist, Stephen Kessler has been a constant creative force in the American literary counterculture for more than fifty years. In Last Call Kessler records with grief and wit, documentary realism and ranging imagination, poignancy, irony, and reflection a journey through the gains and losses of a lifetime. His emotional honesty, conversational lyricism and wry melancholy are down to earth, heart-opening and consciousness-wrenching, retro-romantic and totally contemporary. Open this book to any page and find the unmistakably authentic voice of Stephen Kessler.
