City Lights Pocket Poets #19: Lunch Poems
City Lights Pocket Poets #19: Lunch Poems
by Frank O'hara
Staff Pick
Most days, I carry a copy of Lunch Poems with me on my bus ride to work. It has been an icebreaker, a talisman, a security blanket, and much more. This 50th anniversary edition is a great opportunity to revisit one of the most celebrated poetry collections of the 20th century, or to discover it for the first time. It also includes 14 pages of illuminating correspondence between O'Hara and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, as well as a preface by John Ashbery. And it's finally in hardcover, so it'll last even longer!
