KitKitDizze... Seeing Gary Snyder by Iain Sinclair Signed


Sold out

Beat Scene Press, 150 copies, Signed. 

Iain Sinclair goes to visit Gary Snyder, immortalised in Jack Kerouac's 'The Dharma Bums' as 'Japhy Ryder'. Shortly after the publication of the book Snyder left for a prolonged spell in Japan. He has been trying to escape Japhy Ryder ever since.

Perhaps best known as a poet (often associated with the Beat Generation and the San Francisco Renaissance), he is also an essayist, lecturer, and environmental activist with anarchoprimitivist leanings. He has been described as the "poet laureate of Deep Ecology".
