    here is a Cid/Philip Rpwland 2,000 interview in two parts via flashpoint:<br />http://www.flashpointmag.com/corman1.htm<br /><br />this is about-as-good-as-it-gets.<br /><br />Carlo Parcelli and Brad Haas who do flashpoint live very near me. I went to school early to mid 60&#39;s with Carlo<br />Carlo&#39;s The Canaanite Gospel is, to say the least, a &quot;trip&quot;..<br />you should hear/see

    Like Ed, I say I hope Cid gets his due soon–it&#39;s too long overdue.

    What&#39;s most badly needed is a committed biographer to write Cid&#39;s life. Not someone who was there (it would become a memoir), but a biographer who could sort through the conflicting accounts. Someone people like you, Ed, would trust with copies of your Cid-related papers….

    oppps that first correspondence &quot;set&quot; was 1972 -1975 … then I dropped out for the next 30 years or so…<br /><br />now? I&#39;d drop out again but<br />fear that the next time that<br />I&#39;d drop-back-in I&#39;d be dead

    the guy who did the blog post could have done a bit more research … Cid deserves a truth-based<br />biography … an intense-life-in-poetry deserves more than this &#39;bare-bones&#39; sketch.<br /><br />- it was Gary Snyder who introduced Cid to Will Petersen who got Cid that first teaching job.<br />- it was not &quot;CC&quot; ice-cream shop… it was CCS and Shizumi was it s heart<br />-

    Joseph,<br /><br />I&#39;d like to thank Ed, too, for his unflagging loyalty to a man and his poetics. Ed&#39;s introduced me to many contemporary figures but the two to whom I&#39;m most beholden to Ed for are Corman and Samperi. What a difference those two alone have made in my own poetical life!
