The Paris Review Vol. 10 No. 37 (Spring 1966)

New York, NY: Sadruddin Aga Khan, 1966. First Printing. Softcover. This vintage number of the venerable literary journal then-chiefly edited by George Plimpton features a lengthy, very insightful interview of Beat Generation Founding Father Allen Ginsberg, conducted by the prolific poet-biographer Tom Clark (referred here as "Thomas" & then the Poetry Editor of the Review) & preceded by a photograph of Ginsberg atop the remains of an airplane downed at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba (which reminds this writer of Slim Pickens astride the nuclear bomb in the film "Dr. Strangelove"). Also in this issue is a poem by Ginsberg, "Fragment 1957- The Names," as well as poems by Ted Berrigan, Joanne Kyger, Charles Olson (an excerpt from his monumental "Maximus" series) & Gary Snyder. With fiction including "Several Garlic Tales" by Donald Barthelme, a portfolio of artworks by Jane Freilicher, & more. Also notes on contributors, contemporary ads etc. Trade-format softcover in sewn binding, complete with attached sheet of subscription cards. A very important Beat-&-Beyond issue in this most collectible series. In fine condition with very slight rubbing, occasional spotting & some moderate-size but faint creases to front, esp. back covers & spine; a bit of wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; mild rubbing & spotting to edges of text block, esp. side edge with small series of zigzagging spot-stains at upper area. Interior very fine with only miniscule bumps at corners of a few page leaves. Fine. [Item #4088]
