Entertainingly raspy editor (Robert W. Howington) who considers WORMWOOD REVIEW and THE NEW YORK QUARTERLY the "best lit mags going" and Charles Bukowski "the greatest poet on earth." Crackling poems and illumagery by people like Lyn Lifshin and Gerald Locklin. I was particularly taken with C Ra McGuirt's "statutory verse," which was about "a busload of/ cute little/ baptist/ girls (who)... made me want/ to do something/ desperate...// I guess//this (poem) is/ it."--Bob Grumman
