  1. I sure feel sorry for that poor fellow who happened to be zipping up his pants at the exact moment when Clark painted the cover portrait.

  3. I’d never heard of Charles Olson, Alice Notley or Tom Clark until just now. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be ordering Baseball and looking those other fools up shortly.

  4. Way cool. I thought the cover for Mirror Traffic was original art provided by Malkmus and his label. I’ve been listening to the album since release. I knew Malkmus was a baseball fan but this is on another level, again.

    Good stuff.

    Kyle, you won’t regret the purchase, believe me!

  8. Excellent stuff. Tom Clark also wrote a history of the A’s dynasty of the 1970s called “Champagne and Baloney.” It’s a great book.

  9. Oh SNAP. And that also came out in 1976. It’s like he just wrote nothing but baseball stuff for years and then just had it all drop at once. But that’s not even true, because he was publishing poems and lots of other stuff then, too, as can be seen in the bibliography here.

    Btw, At Malibu contains a three-page Eddie Gaedel poem.

  10. I missed this last year, but I’m glad I got a second chance after hearing you discuss the book on the Stealing Home podcast. Great stuff. Just ordered the book. Thanks!
