Scope and Contents

In a letter to the Sackners, Hirschman comments about this book as follows. "It's story is as follows: the situation in the middle-east is unleashing the kind of sick petty bourgeoise hatred that is a throwback to Europe 50 years ago. In this instance, in a cafe john where I am a customer, someone hadscibbled in large letters: Kill die juden! Underneath the words was a swastika. Ant Pudding is my answer. The leather pages go with the Native American content of the poems. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
