Transit No. 23 (Spring 2010)

Coventry, England: Beat Scene Press, 2010. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. This number of "the little brother to Beat Scene magazine," as its publisher-editor Kevin Ring refers to it in introduction, features a poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti ("Song of the Third World Birds") near the occasion of his 91st birthday in 2010 (as of this writing, the great poet & publisher is still with us at age 101!). Also an excerpt from a then just-published memoir of Charles Bukowski by Pamela "Cupcakes" Wood; two poems by Baby Beat Generation/ Second San Francisco Renaissance veteran Neeli Cherkovski (learn about him in our book, Starting from San Francisco, item No. 3071, Deluxe Edition No. 3075); a poem by Barry Gifford (co-author with Lawrence Lee of the classic Kerouac oral biography, Jack's Book); the poem "Ginsberg in India" about the Beat Generation Founding Father's legendary 1962 sojourn there by the venerable Ed Sanders; poems by Diane di Prima, David Meltzer, Jack Micheline, Charles Plymell (from whose library we acquired this), Anne Waldman & other iconic Beat-&-Beyond figures. With reproduction of photograph of Charles Bukowski filling his car with gas by Michael Montfort on front cover. An important, rare issue in this chapbook-format eccentric sidekick to Ring's Beat Scene magazine; "A Little Magazine of the Beat Generation" (front cover) that richly supplements the larger, more frequent production's motto: "This is the Beat Generation." In very fine condition with only slight rubbing to front, back covers & stapled spine; mild wear & a few tiny bumps, creases at edges & corners of same esp. spine-edge. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps, creases at corners of some page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3599]
