Sudbury, MA: Water Row Press, 1986. Limited First Trade Edition Thus. Softcover. "Reprinted here in its entirety, including an introduction by Jack Kerouac, River of Red Wine is sensitive and musical. First published in 1958, Micheline's collection of poems is required reading for anyone who wants to hear a major, if not understood, voice of the Beat Generation." (back cover) A reissue of the now-classic poetry collection by Jack Micheline (1929-1998, pen name of Harold Silver), the vagabond troubadour-poet & artist who was an original member of the Beat Generation & the San Francisco Renaissance. This 1986 production was published by Water Row Press, the imprint of our friend & mentor Jeffrey Weinberg. Complete with Jack Kerouac's original enthusiastic introduction, & an Author's Note by Micheline written for this edition. Softcover, limited first trade edition thus, one of 1000 copies printed per colophon, published simultaneously with limited numbered & lettered hardcover editions. With laudatory back-cover blurbs on Micheline's work by the distinguished Kerouac biographer Gerald Nicosia & the legendary Charles Bukowski, who writes: "Micheline's wild song-lines bring home the bacon." An increasingly rare & desirable (even in this trade format) version of the exemplary Micheline collectible. In very fine condition with only a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of front, back covers, spine & some page leaves; otherwise substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #4329]
