Blue Jacket 26/27 (1993)

Niigata, Japan: Blue Jacket Press, 1993. First Edition. Softcover. "I think of Jack's letter to me / Suggesting trip to Japan; nothing / About Zen or satori or sushi hotdogs (sic) / I think of all the articles cats wrote / About digging the open road as if it were / A discovery presented to America by Jack / Cats who never read Jack correctly / Just took off with the whirr of his wings / ... / ON THE ROAD which he wanted to name / BEAT GENERATION was understood / By some critics; its value they cried / Was factuality..." (John Montgomery, from the poem "Letters for Kerouac" featured on pg. 1). This is the John Montgomery/Jack Kerouac/Charles Bukowski-dedicated issue of this rare Japanese Beat-devoted literary periodical "...featuring Beat and post-Beat Independent and modern writings" edited by Yusuke Keida. Also with material by and/or about George Dowden; Charles Bukowski; Arthur & Kit Knight; Herschel Silverman, A.D. Winans & more. With text almost entirely in English, this is a delightfully unique rarity at home in any Beat-&-Beyond library. In very fine condition with only slightest shelf-wear to topmost fine-edge of front cover. Very Fine. [Item #3827]
