ELSIE JOHN AND JOEY MARTINEZ
New York: Pequod Press, 1979. First Edition. Wraps. Fine. Printed wraps. Two stories by one of the original Beats. IIllustrated by Leni Fuhrman with a print tipped-in opposite the title page. Copy #25 of 100 numbered copies with handset type SIGNED by the author and the artist on the colophon page. Elsie John was a German-born “hermaphrodite” performer, also known as a “half-and-half” in the parlance of the side show or “freak” show trade because of the custom of presenting half of the body with attributes of a typical male and the other half female. In this memoir Huncke describes how Elsie John introduced him to heroin and to the gay underground of 1930s Chicago.
