ON THE BUS--#8/9, 1991

6421 1/2 Orange St.
Los Angeles CA 90048

336 pp., $13.50

Huge. Enormous. Gargantuan. Massive. Monstrous. Whopping. Overwhelming. and so on... 90+ pages of poetry; 30 pages of translation; a Joyce Carol Oates story; interviews with Anne Waldman, Ai, Alison Lurie, Tom McGrath; articles on Surrealism and Bukowski; 30 pages of reviews... One editor claims "we're still Walt's ( and Emily's ) children, and our tastes are broad and democratic" and the variety proves it--prose-poems, streetwise raps, a shape poem (in the form of a noose), lyrics and laments--something for everyone.--luigi
