Dick McBride reads the first chapter of The Astonished I.

The author recalls a conversation that he had with Jack Kerouac, who had phoned City Lights to talk to Lawrence Ferlinghetti about publishing Visions of Cody.

The Astonished I (Memories & Wet Dreams) was published by McBride’s Books in 1995, and is a recollection of the authors time in San Francisco. It is dedicated to his friend, Tim Prael and contains an introduction by Charles Plymell.

A slightly different version of the first chapter was originally published in Transit and then The Beat Journals, both published by Kevin Ring’s Beat Scene Press.

Recorded by J.Redman & L.Dow at St Ann’s Well Cafe, Great Malvern (Sept 10th 2004).
