Beat Scene No. 80 (Winter 2015)

Coventry, England: Beat Scene Press, 2015. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. Beat Scene No. 80 begins with a remembrance by Susan Kay Anderson, former student of Ed Dorn, renowned and respected poet often associated with the Black Mountain school, about the time spent and lessons learned with this courageous, irreverent icon of alternative American Letters. Following this is a similar elegiac remembrance of John Wieners by Raymond Foye, depicting Wieners and Allen Ginsberg not as pious poet-shamans but as ordinary people as they meet at a coffee shop in preparation for a Wieners reading. Following that we have editor Kevin Ring deliver an insightful article on Harold Norse and his "Bastard Angels" literary magazine, and a fresh biographical sketch on Richard Brautigan brought to us through an article on Erik Weber's compelling new book of Brautigan photographs. Also included is another article on Brautigan, and other contributions regarding Michael McClure, Wallace Berman, David Amram, and John Clellon-Holmes. As new with only faintest evidence of bump-crease on top right-hand corner of cover. As New. [Item #2572]
