Jimmy & Lucy's House of "K" No. 9, January 1989

Kensington & Oakland, CA: The House of "K" 1989. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. The ninth & final number of the short-lived but significant mimeo-zine literary journal edited & with contributions by Benjamin Friedlander & Andrew Schelling. Subtitled "The Poetics of Emptiness," this cumulative issue is a record of "A Collaborative Gathering of Poets who Meditate" by that title held at the Green Gulch Farm Zen Center in California during April of 1987. Among those who delivered talks transcribed here were Gary Snyder, Anne Waldman & Philip Whalen- three of the most important primary poets of the Beat Generation & beyond. Other participants included Cid Corman, editor & publisher of the seminal literary journal Origins; Norman Fischer; Friedlander; Schelling & Nathaniel Tarn. A treasury of literary wisdom preserved for posterity & scholarship, & arguably the most valuable issue in this small, collectible series. In exceptionally very fine condition with only a few small, faint creases at side & lower edges of front cover; one tiny spot at mid-left edge of back cover; staples in process of rusting; otherwise virtually mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #2496]
