Beat Scene No. 28

Warwickshire, England: The Beat Scene Press, 1997. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. This vintage 1997 number of the magazine-format literary journal edited & published by Kevin Ring in the UK features a lengthy section of tributes to Allen Ginsberg, who died that year, by Jim Burns, Michael McClure, Ring, Ron Whitehead & others. Also an interview with photographer Larry Keenan conducted by Ring, illustrated with images of some of Keenan's classic photographs; excerpts from a diary by Suzanne Hines of her experiences with Herbert Huncke as his manager during his reading tour of Europe very late in his life; an early 1970s interview with Charles Bukowski conducted by Robert Wennersten; & much more. Reviews of works by or about Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Bob Kaufman, Jack Kerouac & others, as well as of a recording by Michael McClure with Ray Manzarek of The Doors. With reproductions of many photographs & illustrations throughout, including Ginsberg on his Cherry Valley, NY farm in 1970 on front cover. Another rich, kaleidoscopic issue in this indispensable series dedicated to the Beat Generation, earlier numbers like this are increasingly scarce & collectible. In very fine condition with only minor creases at spine & upper-right areas of front & back covers; staples in process of rusting; otherwise virtually mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #2090]
