Couples who are Poets

Los Angeles, CA: On The Bus Magazine/ Bombshelter Press, 1990. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. A chapbook with poems concerned with the common, mutual theme of couplehood by members thereof. A production of Jack Grapes' On the Bus-Bombshelter Press which always emphasizes the Los Angeles & California literary scene. Highlights include a poem each by Grapes & his partner Lori Cohen; & one each by Robert Peters (1924-2014), the acclaimed & prolific poet, critic playwright, etc. & his partner, the noted poet Paul Trachtenberg. With three (& 1/2 of one) other couples. A greatly expanded version of this was published the same year (1990), edited by Francis C. Fernandez; this is a reduced, perhaps promotional version described as a "...publication of On the Bus Magazine readings" & noting Fernandez as designer on title/copyright page. A very rare Grapes/ On the Bus- related collectible. In very fine condition with only tiny bumps at corners of spine; staples beginning to rust with very slight bleeding at interior; otherwise substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #2899]
