QuotationThis morning I began looking at the copy of [Rene] Daumal's Mount Analogue, which Ferlinghetti just published and which he gave me in San Francisco... From Mount Analogue: "How it was proved that a hitherto unknown continent really existed with mountains much higher than the Himalaya"¦how it happened that no one detected it befor"¦how we reached it, what creatures we met ther"”how another expedition pursuing quite different goals barely missed destruction."
