Retrievals is a collection of criticism about underrecognized poets, unfairly discredited critics, artists obscured by more famous relations—basically, writers and artists that have fallen off the cultural map or never quite made it there in the first place. These essays, collected for the first time, span 10 years of Garrett Caples' writing as an arts journalist and editor at City Lights Publishers. His encyclopedic knowledge of surrealism, art history, and Bay Area artists together with candid and tender anecdotes give his writing a humble charm not often found in works of criticism.
