Laurie Anderson's first artist's book is a diaristic calendar, with each page representing a day in the month of October 1972:
"On Canal Street, I do not understand the sexual pantomimes of the dogs trotting by my side. October 1, 1972 / In my dream, I am your customer. October 2, 1972"
"On Mott Street, I am in my body the same way most people are in their cars. October 3, 1972 ... "
"At my desk, I feel the radio waves vibrating in the wood. October 21, 1972".
Some of the obervations would reappear in her United States Live performance, and the October 21st text would later become The Handphone Table (below).
October 1972 was later reprinted by Holly Solomon Gallery in 1976. Both versions are scarce.
