Beat Scene, No. 92, Spring 2019

Coventry, England: Beat Scene Press, 2019. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. The latest (as of this writing) number of the essential Beat Scene magazine published & edited by Kevin Ring in the UK features several articles relating to the life & work of Jack Kerouac, a Founding Father of the Beat Generation: "Jack Kerouac and the Dharma Bums" by the great pioneering Kerouac biographer Ann Charters; a short study of an unpublished 1951 letter from Kerouac to Neal Cassady by Michael Kearns; & an original review of Robert J. Milewski's important bibliography of secondary Kerouac sources by Bill Gargan which first appeared in the venerable Moody Street Irregulars newsletter in 1981. Also "Revolution by Flicker: The Meaning of the Dreamachine" by David Holzer, about the legendary instrument created & used by William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin & Ian Sommerville; an account of a conversation between Al Hinkle (1926-2018, "Ed Dunkle" in On the Road) & Jerry Cimino, founder of San Francisco's Beat Museum; several articles on another Beat Founding Father, Allen Ginsberg, including "The Allen Ginsberg Bob Dylan Tapes" by Pauline Reeves; & more. With many reviews, including of Beat Centenarian Lawrence Ferlinghetti's acclaimed new book, Little Boy. With fascinating vintage photographs & images throughout as ever, including Ginsberg & Charters in the Lower East Side of NYC during 1966 on front cover. Another indispensable issue for the collector & enthusiast. Indeed, "This is the Beat Generation" as the front cover always states. Brand new but slightly jostled in transit, therefore in very fine condition with only a few short, light creases extending from stapled spine to front cover; one short, faint crease & tiny bump near & at upper right corner of front cover; small wave-creases near & at upper corners of page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3250]
