Date: 
2004
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
David's new book brings together city poems from many sources, including folders on David's desk. John provides a generous introduction, and the illustrations combine the murals and paintings of Gamaliel Ramirez with photos of other art works and urban icons by Wayne Allen Jones, designer and typesetter of the book. This set brings together the poems that were the basis for the 1991 radio show in which John and David exchanged poems fueling the debate and ironic views of the dialectic between Chicago and its suburbs.
