Burroughs, Jim Carroll, Ken Kesey & others; as well as the legendary publisher Barnery Rossett. This issue also includes an interview with poet William Stafford conducted by William Young; another interview of author Diana Trilling conducted by Patricia Bosworth; "Burning the Days," a section from James Salter's then-forthcoming memoir; the poem "Blue Glide" by Stephen Yenser (winner of the Review's B.F. Conners Poetry Prize for 1993) & much more.
