This work was first published in Contact, San Francisco's magazine of arts and letters. This is the first printing in book form. It is written in verse, and was reviewed by Kenneth Lamott, as follows: In Notes From a Bottle, Even Connell emerges as a cartographer of the darkest continent of all, the spirit of man. The journey on which he takes us is through a fearsome land that has lost its dimension of time, where we encounter as contemporaries the explorers of Vineland, the warriors of World War II, the ancient Etruscans, the Perpetrators of the Hiroshima bomb, medieval alchemists, the saints, martyrs, and great heretics of the church, the builders of Chichen Itza, the conquistadores, composers of the Vedas, and the operators and victims of the gas chambers. We find this work beautiful, unforgettable, profoundly disturbing, and curiously pertinent to the spiritual dilemma in which we find ourselves in the midst of this century. . . . The cloth binding is ivory with a stamped design on the front. The spine is tanned with a few small spots on the back.
