Review of Poetry Combine [Larry/Andrei]

A group of poets (lead by the inimitable Andrei Codrescu) wander a New Orleans neighborhood searching for fodder for their writing and man, what they find! A hot dog seller who writes songs, a bar owner espousing the power of dreams, and a Burlesque performer with a masters degree in counseling that Codrescu describes as "a model New Orleans citizen that has developed an aggressively post modern form of strip tease." Codrescu leads this troop of writers through the neighborhood (and us through the piece) with his usual wit and eloquence. PDs: as April is National Poetry Month, this would be a great addition to the mix.
