Glasgow, Scotland: The Kerouac Connection, 1992. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. This vintage number of the UK literary journal of the Beat Generation & especially Jack Kerouac features several contributions by the supreme Kerouac authority & critical biographer Gerald Nicosia (our good friend & colleague at the European Beat Studies Network, ebsn.eu): The first of three memorial tributes to the writer John Montgomery, Kerouac's friend & a character in his works who contributed to previous KC issues & passed away earlier during the year this was published; & a lengthy, analytical review of Pomes All Sizes, the collection of theretofore unpublished Kerouac poems which had just been issued by City Lights Books, with many quotes from the poems, the final of three reviews of that volume. Also in this issue are many more reviews by Rod Anstee, Daniel Barth, Jim Burns, Kaviraj George Dowden, editor James Morton & former editor David Moore; Kerouac-inspired & themed poems by Burns, Dowden, Stephen Ronan & others; & several insightful, scholarly essays including "Thomas Wolfe and Jack Kerouac" by Barth.

Another deep, rich & rewarding issue in this most eminent & collectible series where, as stated on front cover, "The Beat Goes On!"
