ruth weiss (1928–2020), who as a gesture against any type of regulatory force refrained from capital letters in her name, has many admirers. In One More Step West Is the Sea: ruth weiss, Thomas Antonic erects a memorial to the jazz-poetry pioneer. He assembles an anarchic portrait and designs a collage that is as colorful as weiss’s hair. A personal meeting in the northern Californian woods with one of the leading women of the Beat Generation.
