AUGUST FEATURE: SOMETHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY...
The family of Beat-&-Beyond “brothersisterhood,” to quote Second San Francisco Renaissance poet Neeli Cherkovski, that is. As we commemorate the birth of our namesake-inspiration—the great William S. Burroughs—every February, so too we must honor Uncle Bill in death—and just yesterday marked the 23rd anniversary of WSB’s passing. As such, we’ve included some marvelous WSB items in this month’s special, but not only WSB. For the Black Mountain-curious or Devoted Olsonian, we’ve got a plump plate of “Charles-cuterie;” representing the Beat sensibility is TMB’s groundbreaking 2018 literary history of the Second San Francisco Renaissance, along with items featuring Ed Sanders (including the sought-after “Café Le Metro” issue of the Wormwood Review), Lawrence Ferlinghetti, & Jack Micheline; for a distinctly West Coast sensibility, we’ve got the lauded-by-all-poets, must-read classic “Archetype West” by the great William Everson.
This & more awaits you in the August Special...ENJOY!
