The Tale of the Amazing Tramp is a collection of poems by a little known Beat poet named Dan Propper (1937-2003). It was published by Cherry Valley Editions in 1977. Propper's poetry is jazz-infuenced and is also reminiscent of Frank O'Hara with frequent name mentions (eg Lenny Bruce, Nathaniel West, Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline, Walt Whitman, Malcolm Lowry, William Faulkner, Charlie Parker). His best known work is probably his long(ish) poem The Final Hour, published in 1960.
Admitedly the poems in The Tale of the Amazing Tramp are of mixed quality, but overall I think it is still a damn good collection and if you want to check it (and other out-of-print Propper titles) visit Abebooks.com. The Tale of the Amazing Tramp is worth it.
