WEBER, Bruce. The Chop Suey Club.
(San Francisco): Arena Editions, 1999. First edition. Octavo. A unique album of photographs featuring Peter Johnson, an athlete Weber discovered on location at a wrestling camp in Iowa. Taken over four consecutive years, the photographs show the evolution from adolescence to manhood, as Johnson is seen in various states of dress and undress, in diverse locations around the world. The Chop Suey Club is not easily classified, but it is Weber at his classical, obsessive best. Includes brief texts by Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, T.E. Lawrence, Shel Silverstein, and Bruce Springsteen. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.
