What Wred's Currently Reading: Stations Of The Lost & Found by Smith & Lady

I have about six months' worth of reading piled up, so I've finally gotten to Cleveland, Ohio USA poet Smith's memoir (Lady's listed as a co-writer, but I haven't gotten to her part yet), which I bought back in October.  So far, it's the 1960s, and Smith has left the Naval Academy to take massive amounts of drugs.  It's an interesting read, definitely for fans of Henry Miller and the Beats.  Right now, Smith's just gotten married, and I'm guessing that things don't work out well since she's referred to as his "future ex-wife".  I picked this up at Guide to Kulchur, which is not just a bookstore, but also a zine library--a very fun place!
