Flushing, NY: Drue Heinz, 1995. First Printing. Softcover. This later-vintage number of the venerable literary journal then chiefly-edited by George Plimpton features a very lengthy, thorough, riveting diaristic essay by Elissa Schappell, then a co-editor of the Review, about her attendance of a seminar taught by Allen Ginsberg at New York University, including several somewhat scarce images. This wonderful piece takes you with Schappell to share the experience of deep learning with "Professor" Ginsberg about himself, his iconic fellow Founders of the Beat Generation & their works (pgs. 212-257). Also in this issue are contributions of poetry by John Ashbery, Thom Gunn, Adrienne Rich & many others; nonfiction prose beside Schappell's by Edmund White & others; fiction by Francine Prose & others; several in-depth interviews including of Gunn conducted by Clive Wilmer, preceded by facsimile manuscript page of poetry; & a portfolio of drawings by Judy Glantzman. With notes on contributors, contemporary ads. Trade-format softcover. Another bountiful, varied & rich (pun only somewhat intended) issue in this eminently collectible series, of special interest to devotees of Allen Ginsberg & his Beat Generation. In very fine condition with only the slightest rubbing to front, back covers & spine; a bit of wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; light, sparse rubbing at lower edge of text block. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at upper corners of a few page leaves; otherwise substantially mint. Very Fine. [Item #4159]
