Peter Hujar's Day

Linda Rosenkrantz


Magic Hour Press, 2021. Softcover, 47pp., 5.25 x 8 inches


On December 18, 1974, Linda Rosenkrantz asked her friend Peter Hujar to write down everything he did one day. Hujar met Rosenkrantz at her apartment on 94th street the following day where she asked him about it in detail. She tape-recorded their conversation and this book is a full transcript of that exchange, published here for the first time since it was recorded 47 years ago.

“Peter Hujar’s monologue, prompted by Linda Rosenkranz, is a Warholian gem, and a prize discovery for Magic Hour Press.” — Moyra Davey
