PLYMELL, Charles. The Last of the Moccasins.

(San Francisco, CA): City Lights Books, 1971. First edition. Paperback original. 161 pages. An impressionistic novel which chronicles Plymell’s experiences in and out of San Francisco in the early 60s, when the ‘Wichita Vortex’ collided with the Beat Generation. Though sharing some thematic and stylistic concerns with other works in the Beat pantheon, Plymell’s novel is unique expression shaped by the picaresque sensibilities of the car, bop, and Benzedrine cultures of the Midwest. A very good plus copy in printed wrappers.
