“It is wonderful, and singularly fitting, that Joe Brainard’s collected writings are being published by The Library of America. Brainard’s subject was memory, that is, the things that memory remembers. In his case these were as quirky as anybody’s, which is why so many readers have responded to them. Brainard was that recognizable American phenomenon, the oddball classicist.”—John Ashbery
