Item description for The Art of the Possible!: Comics Mainly Without Pictures by Kenneth Koch & David Lehman...
This unusual mix of art and words is infused with the same energetic wordplay, humor, and tenderness as Kenneth Koch's best poems. Illustrated and lettered in his own hand and studded with visual puns and jokes, Koch's sweetly absurd milieu is peopled by Miles Davis, John Cage, Virgil Thomson, Aaron Copland, Lillian Hellman, Twiggy, and a host of others. Part journal, part sketchbook, and wholly original, The Art of the Possible offers a window into the world and art of one of America's most treasured poets and teachers.
