Here's what's being said about After the Orange Glow:
“After the Orange Glow is a bohemian burlesque careening through both the literal and literary catacombs of late 20th century France. It's a typically atypical Mark Spitzer romp, filled with outrageousness and insight.”
- Ken Wright, author of Why I'm Against It All
“Mark Spitzer is a great writer . . . what he gets down on the page is his own vision, a vision filled with energy, movement, humor, and surprise.”
- David Gessner, author of Sick of Nature
“Mark Spitzer has written a humping, yowling, spewing, brow-beating memoir about his cumming crackling youth spent in Paris at George Whitman's Shakespeare and Co., an historic and histrionic wacky crash-pad bookstore where misguided and horny youth flop and f%$k and color poetry while smoking hashish and drinking wine. After the Orange Glow recounts how f%$k buddies, perverted patrons, jaded poets and trustafarians distracted Spitzer from translating Genet’s poetry and writing the Manifesto of his generation, and is a must must must read for anyone who gives a shit about poetry, the Beats, Paris, sex, drugs, and apparitions."
- Elva Maxine Beach, author of Neurotica
“Spitzer is sui generis: you will not find another like him . . . he is the most dedicated writer I know.”
- Luis Alberto Urrea, author of Into the Beautiful North
“Spitzer has been more attentive than his predecessors to Genet’s gnarled syntax . . . he has carefully researched Genet’s use of prison argot . . . For instance, only someone privy to this dialect would know that 'une biche dorée' is not only ‘a gilded doe’ but also . . . a young boy who is sodomized for the first time.”
- Edmund White, author of Rimbaud: The Double Life of a Rebel and City Boy
