175pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] Orange and blue pictorial wraps, illustrated with photo-booth self-portrait snapshots of Slim Brundage from the late 1920s.
Part of the Bughouse Square Series. From the rear cover- "The writings collected here by the College's founder and janitor, Slim Brundage (1903&1990), chronicle the colorful history of what may well be the oldest continuous dissident working class intellectual community in the US. Hobo, wobbly, soapboxer, veteran of Bughouse Square and the Dil Pickle, 'little theater' playwright/actor, president emeritus of the Hobo College in the 1930s, housepainter, humorist, and chief architect of the scandalous Beatnik Party during the 1960 elections, Brundage was very much a maker of the history he writes about."
