Levy was a pioneer in the American mimeograph revolution. His bohemian and intensely local writings are still respected today, Cleveland Under Covers being one of his most notable works. Here he writes of his home Cleveland, Ohio, its past, present and future, in typical incendiary and reverential prose. In the introduction he states that this poem is perhaps one of the first written about Cleveland in 150 years. Perhaps he's right. Cleveland Under Covers remains an important work by an essential American alternative writer and publisher.
