Moody Street Irregulars No. 2 (Summer 1978)

Clarence Center, NY: Moody Street Irregulars, 1978. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. A fun fact about Moody Street Irregulars, the Jack Kerouac-focused magazine published and edited primarily by the late Joy Walsh, is that “…the title of the publication derives from the “Baker Street Irregulars,” a group of street urchins often employed by Sherlock Holmes in the novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.” Now that you've imbibed your "Beat Snapple Fact of the day," provided by your favorite independent bookselling source, Third Mind Books, let's dive into what this early issue of Walsh's classic "Moody Street Irregulars" contains. “THIS ISSUE INCLUDES: ‘Kerouac: a Reichian Interpretation” by Joy Walsh, “Five Pieces on the Subject of Kerouac” by Udo Breger, “Book of Dreams Index, Continued” by John Montgomery, News, Queries, “A Few Words on Jack’s Merit” by Allen Ginsberg, A Book Blurb on ‘As Ever’ (the Collected Correspondence of Allen Ginsberg & Neal Cassady, edited by Barry Gifford), and a rap on his book about Kerouac by Dennis McNally, a few words by Allen Ginsberg on McNally’s book, Letters to the Editors, A Translation from the Swedish describing the book ‘Jack’ by Ulf Lundell, and “On An Evening with Jack Kerouac” by Paul Brouillette.” (from Copyright Page). Quite the lineup; something for the scholars, the biographically-interested, and the kicks-hungry enthusiast alike. Be sure to search “Moody Street Irregulars” in the Search Engine of the Third Mind Books site to browse our complete MSI holdings. Magazine in relatively very fine condition with only inevitable mild browning to cover & page leaves; two tiny tears on rightmost fine-edge at center-middle spanning through pgs. 7-10; the tear is small, and the text itself is completely unaffected; tiny amount of rust to staples, quite mild—a comparatively fragile piece of Kerouaciana that has weathered its years uncommonly well. Very Fine. [Item #4722]
