Charles Plymell has been active participant in the formation of American literary history for over forty years. He printed the first ZAP comic book for R. Crumb in the sixties, his seminal novel, Last of the Moccasins, was published by City Lights, he co-founded Cherry Valley Editions and, with his wife, Pamela Beach Plymell, they published major work by William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Herbert Huncke. Charles Plymell lives in Cherry Valley, New York.From Library Journal:
Plymell lived with Neal Cassady and Allen Ginsberg in San Francisco in the early 1960s. Ever since then, he has been associated with the Beat Generation, both as a writer (The Last of the Moccasins) and the cofounder, with his wife, Pamela Beach Plymell, of Cherry Valley Editions, which issued the work of Ginsberg, Herbert Huncke, and Ray Bremser, among others. This sampler includes a representative selection of the author's poetry and prose, including personal reminiscence of, and poetic tributes to, his late friends Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and Jack Micheline. Plymell's writings share the Beat Generation's tradition of protest as well as its concern over governmental interference with individual freedoms, especially the enactment of anti-drug legislation. This work will probably not win him many new readers, but Beat aficionados will not want to miss it. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.DWilliam Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
