About Stroking the Sparrow's Tail
"Every poetry lover in Ulster County should own a copy of this book."
- Peter Lamborn Wilson - See Review.
"A great storyteller in his own inimitable Algonquin-Ashkenazi-Zen-beatnik style"
-Mikhail Horowitz, from the preface to Stroking the Sparrow's Tail.
"Arthur was capable of taking a musty, dusty old ritual or a black-and-white text and imbuing it with rainbow colors and psychedelic scents that made so much sense that one’s mind hurt."
-Rabbi Bill Strongin
Arthur Joseph Kushner was a mid-Hudson Valley writer, martial artist, spiritual seeker and handyman who died unpublished at 57 of a heart attack in 2002. This posthumous volume, edited by his long-time friend Mikhail Horowitz, is accompanied by a two-CD set, the first of remastered recordings of Arthur reading his longer works, and the second with new readings.- Bram Moreinis, Publisher
