The Buddhist Third Class Junkmail Oracle collects d.a. levy's poetry, his collages--in both color and black-and-white--and other examples of his art, in a splendid large-format celebration of levy's unique contribution.
A visual artist, and an important figure in the concrete poetry movement, levy was also an activist and mystic who either committed suicide or was murdered at the age of twenty-six in East Cleveland. This occurred after two and a half years of intense media coverage, police harassment and court trials, and just as he was starting to be recognized as one of the most important geniuses of his generation.
Edited, with an investigative essay on Levy's life and mysterious death, by Mike Golden.
