Clarence Center, NY: Moody Street Irregulars, 1982. First Printings. Stapled Wrappers. Offered here is another impressive bundle of Joy Walsh's Moody Street Irregulars, this time featuring Issue No. 11 (The "French Connection" Issue of Spring-Summer 1982) and Issue No. 12 (the "Omnibus" Issue of Fall 1982). Diving right into the contents of Issue No. 11, we have Pierre Anctil appearing with "Jack Kerouac and the Problem of Joual Aesthetics," a culturally-situated look at Kerouac's writing "...studied in terms of its Franco-American affinities," as a possible/veritable part of Quebec's "National Literature." Maurice Poteet dominates the issue with a total of four contributions. These include "Two More for the Road," comprised of two paragraph-long pieces--the first of which is titled "Acushnet, MA" and is made up of excerpts from a letter sent to Moody Street Irregulars in 1981, and the second concerns "...an event in Montreal..." in which features a bar named "Les Colschards celestes," (The Dharma Bums). Poteet additionally contributes another Quebec-focused piece, "A Select Quebec-France Bibliography Sur Kerouac"--a capsule, French-language bibliography spanning from 1963-1980 covering works about Kerouac. In addition to these are "Le Devoir Dossier on Kerouac," again focused on Quebec's complicated relationship with Kerouac (this time exemplified by a piece which appeared in "...Montreal's influential daily, LE DEVOIR..."). The forth of Poteet's integral contributions comes in the form of "A Saxish Note," a literary-critical (as in the Frankfurt School of Critical Theorists) short rumination on Kerouac's 1959 novel "Dr. Sax." We could likewise expound at great length about the equally-abundant "Omnibus" Issue of Fall 1982, but opt instead to list the contributions, with limited comment, as follows. R.H. Olson appears with "Headed for the Pure Land"; Kerouac himself appears with a May 13, 1965 article addressed to one "Mr. Singh"; Steve Dossey contributes "Gregory Corso: Another View," a piece on Corso focused on a single incident in 1977; Chris Challis [whose "Quest for Kerouac" we presently offer here at TMB--see Item #4109] appears with "The Recognizable Pseudonym In the Novels of John Clellon Homes." Syd Davis contributes "Kerouac's London,"; Challis again with "From the Mad Search for the Kicks to the Athlete's Dream"; William Ryan with "Blake-Light Tragedy Among the Scholars of War"; Robert Prochaska with "To Here and Back"; Vincent Chetcuti with "Visions of Kerouac #14" followed by a suite of Beat-considerate/relevant book reviews; finally, the issue concludes with a poem by John Clellon Holmes titled "Going West Alone," a memoriam-elegy to his late, treasured friend. All this and more in the big-bang-for-your-buck bundle of Moody Street Irregulars, the Joy Walsh-edited (and Jack Kerouac-focused) Beat periodical.
