ojisan appreciation post part 1
I have read odds and ends of Harlan’s stories. I would love to find some of these jems. Gentleman Junkie seems especially interesting. It’s something Harlan wrote when he was either coming or going to Vietnam. It’s got a lot of commentary on the prejudice of the time. Memos from Purgatory should also be very interesting, just because Harlan actually joined a juvenile gang, and spent a night in prison. A lot of these stories were shared in magazines, later to be published in trade paperbacks.
Harlan was such a wildman, very abrasive fellow, but amazing writing, definitely worth braving!
