Whatnot: A Talk with Philip Whalen

Coventry, England: The Beat Scene Press, 2012. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. Numbered Limited Edition (#46/125). In this candid, historical interview with Philip Whalen, poet David Meltzer catches a still-sharp yet physically-deteriorating Philip Whalen at a crucial point--not long before he became too sick to mine his memory any longer for firsthand biographical glimpses of America's literary past. Whalen recounts his early years with Snyder & Kerouac in San Francisco, and illuminates essential facts regarding his widely-known relation to Buddhism, the influence Gertrude Stein had on him & Lew Welch, and other priceless anecdotes about the San Francisco scene at large. An extremely important interview that will be pored over by scholars for years to come. Very Fine. [Item #2659]
