Scope and Contents

In this book of previously published brief essays and interviews, Jonathan Williams describes his publishing in Jargon as follows: "Most of the people we've published despise ninety-five percent of the others we've done - that's probably a very healthy thing. Remember, you're dealing with a hillbilly oligarch, a crank. Whether it's poetry of photography or visionary fold-art or persons themselves, I love things that are 'bright-eyed, non-uppity, autochthonous, wacko, private, isolate, unconventional, unpaved, non-commercial, non-nice, naive, outside, fantastic, sub-aesthetic, home-style and bushy-tailed." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
