Published in 1967, Underground Digest Vol. 1, No. 2, features a “Notes of a Dirty Old Man Column” in which Bukowski shares the ugly events of his mother’s death and subsequent burial. It first appeared in the "Open City” weekly.

Although it lasted only two issues, UNDERGROUND DIGEST: The Best of the Underground Press, printed collections of work that appeared in underground newspapers across the United States. Looking back at these issues, they serve as a wonderful time capsule of the scene at the time.

In addition to Bukowski, this issues includes an original 5-page interview with Frank Zappa by Anna Maria Stramese; an apparently original article by Thomas de Baggio, "Scandal in Sacramento," followed by the Drew Pearson /Jack Anderson column that broke the alleged "news" about the "homosexual ring" operating in the office of then-Governor Ronald Reagan; Tom Robbins review of the "Doors" reprinted from "Helix"; "Washington Underground," an apparently original column on the underground press in DC by de Baggio; 3-page "Head Comix" and 2-page "Life Among the Constipated" by R. Crumb, both reprinted from "Yarrowstalks"; editor Castell's column "Bad Trip"; and record and book reviews by Castell and Watson, respectively.

A Near Fine + copy with tiny creases to the oversized covers.

Overall, a beautiful copy of this important journal edited by Christopher Boal and Taylor Castell out of Village Station, New York.
