The Evergreen Review ( 1957-1973) was the literary magazine of the book publishers Grove Press. Naturally, it often championed its own authors – such as the Beat elite : Burroughs, Ginsberg, Kerouac, also Bukowski and the first English language edition of Barbarella. In other words, all the good stuff ( & everything we celebrate on the is website).
This issue features US ex-pat photographer (transplanted to Paris), William Klein’s 2nd celluloid outing. His first film 1966′, brilliantly sent up the fashion industry. Unfortunately, as ambitious as Mr Freedom was, it failed to repeat the success of the first film. Despite the comic book style lambasting of US foreign policy, the film’s production value let it down. Shame. However the book of the film, (published by Eric Losfeld whose Le Terrain Vague imprint published Barbarella in1964) is brilliant, marrying film stills with cartoon speech bubbles to great affect.
This issue features an interview with Klein and images from the film
