Beat Scene No. 75 (Winter 2014)

Coventry, England: The Beat Scene Press, 2014. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. This number of the magazine-format literary journal published & edited by Kevin Ring in the UK features an article on the greatest bombshell of recent Beat history, the uncovering of Neal Cassady's legendary "Joan Anderson letter" to Jack Kerouac, by Jerry Cimino, the director of the Beat Museum in San Francisco. Also a lengthy memoir by the recently deceased writer Ron Loewinsohn describing his encounters with many figures during the earlier days of the Beat Generation; an interview with William S. Burroughs collector-bibliographer Eric Shoaf conducted by Ring; another article by Ring which is "A response to two short films dramatizing the Charles Bukowski poem Nirvana as read by musician Tom Waits..."; an essay on poet John Wieners by Paul Lyons & much, much more. With reviews, many great reproductions of vintage images, etc. Another treasure trove of an issue, of great interest to the Beat collector-scholar. In very fine, new condition with only one minor crease through front, back covers & interior at upper right corner. Very Fine. [Item #2010]
