“Dear Brian O’Doherty,
Here is my article, short enough and I apologize; I hope you can accept him [sic] and it will be in a sufficient harmony with the issue you conceived. I hope to come to NY in November and I’ll phone to you.
— letter sent Oct. 29, c. 1967, as O’Doherty has commissioned Barthes the essay, “The Death of the Author” for the magazine Aspen.
This letter and many many many others—from and to Brian O’Doherty aka Patrick Ireland can be found in this unexpected and energising collection, deftly edited by Brenda Moore-McCann.
