A Hole In the Ocean: A Writing Apprenticeship in the Hamptons
Between 1966, when I knew that I wanted to be a writer, and the decade that followed, I lived among a group of accomplished writers and artists in Long Island's Hamptons. They offered themselves as mentors. Some of the writers included David Ignatow, H. R. Hays and Charles Matz. Some of the artists included Willem de Kooning, Ilya Bolotowsky and John MacWhinnie. A Hole In the Ocean is a memoir examining our lives in that time and place.
