Comments

Premiere issue of this short-lived little magazine dedicated to poetry, prose, and artwork, intended as Bukowski's alternative to the Black Mountain Review. He despised the Black Mountain School, going so far as to reproduce the following manifesto on the cover of Issue No.1: "In Disgust with poetry Chicago, with the dull dumpling pattycake safe Creeley's, Olsons, Dickeys, Merwins, Nemerovs and Merediths - This is Issue # one volume one of Laugh Literary and Man the Humping Guns." Dorbin C438-439, E67.
