Power is regaining the power
Jim Power, the Mosaic Man, is out of the hospital after a serious accident in which he broke his shoulder and hand in a fall in the shower in his Bushwick apartment.
Although hes on the mend, he said it was a real shock to see his loyal canine companion, Jesse Jane, who was cared for by friends while he was in the Veterans Affairs Hospital.
I have to retrain my dog, he said. She was joyrided around town. She has no concept of being a service dog anymore. I didnt even recognize her.
Power is also launching a fundraising effort basically for himself.
Sander Hicks will manage my affairs. He is now my agent, Power said of the maverick publisher of Soft Skull Press.
