Hoi Chilies Kai E Meutera Nuchta [The Thousand and Second Night and Other Poems.]
Translated by Vassili Vassilikos.
First edition thus, first impression. Inscribed by the author and the translator on the front free endpaper “To Allen Ansen… and from his friend, veiled in a foreign tongue, Jimmy.” Alan Ansen (1922-2006) was a central figure in the loose collection of writers known as the Beats. He was close friends with Burroughs, Ginsberg and Kerouac, and was the inspiration for several of Kerouac’s characters including “Rollo Greb” in On the Road, and for “A.J.” in Burroughs’s Naked Lunch.
