Beat Scene No. 61 (Winter 2010)

Coventry, England: Beat Scene Press, 2010. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. Beat Scene Magazine No. 61 opens with an extensive, well-researched article on the time William S. Burroughs spent in Denmark in 1957 when visiting his close friend Kells Elvins, a fellow intellectual he had known since childhood. The time Burroughs spent in Denmark had a marked and notable influence on many of the passages Burroughs would soon unveil in his infamous classic "Naked Lunch." Also included is a remembrance of respected San Francisco poet Harold Norse, a feature on Keith Abbot's memoir of Richard Brautigan, "Downstream From Trout Fishing in America," and an accompanying interview of its author. Following these are editorial tributes on noted poet & punk musician Jim Carrol & reclusive Beat Lenore Kandel, and an article on Burroughs' simultaneously explorative and dangerous relationship with drugs. As new with only slightest evidence of bumping to all corners of front cover and leftmost fine edge of same; similar miniscule bumping present on all corners of back cover. As New. [Item #2567]
