Ellison wrote the foreword for the Johns Hopkins' 1988 reissue of THE BEER CAN ON THE HIGHWAY, praising the work as "one that springs from deep within that rich segment of the American grain which gave us the likes of Emerson and Whitman, Horatio Greenough and Constance Rourke?yes, and Mark Twain." Both men wrote on jazz and appear together in several books on the subject. Near fine with Kouwenhoven's penciled notes referring to certain pages/passages in the book on the rear endpaper; in near fine dust jacket with a touch of soiling, corners nicked and one tiny chip.
