The end of a single-spaced page

The Voidoid
by Richard Hell
with drawings by Kier Cooke Sandvik
published by Josh Smith's and Todd Amicon's 38th Street Publishers ( Richard will give a quick reading from the book, and Richard and Kier, who's briefly here from Norway, will sign copies for interested parties. There will be refreshments.
As Hell wrote in the intro to the 1996 edition of the novelina:

“The Voidoid was written in 1973 in a little furnished room on East 10th St. I was staying with Jennifer ('my thoughts and me are like ships that pass in the night’) in her apartment down the block overlooking the graveyard at St. Mark's Church. The Neon Boys was stalled because we couldn't find a second guitar player... Every day I'd take a bottle of wine with me across the street to the $16-a-week room I'd rented for writing. The method was I’d keep going till I got to the end of a single-spaced page, which was pretty far. I'd wake up an hour later and have to drink a whole lot of water.”
