Lower East Side documentarian Clayton Patterson sent along some photos from a visit with author Alan Kaufman this week. Kaufman , the author of “The Outlaw Bible of American Literature,” read from his new book, Drunken Angel, on Tuesday night at St. Mark’s Bookshop. Clayton sent along some shots of a group of friends who gathered at the home of Grove Press publisher and founder Barney Rosset, and also of a reunion of the “Unbearables,” a group of downtown New York authors who have collaborated on numerous literary projects.
