Another in the ONTHEBUS Poets Series of anthologies celebrating the vitality and diversity of Los Angeles poetry. These twelve poets explore the Southern California quest, that American search for the Grail borne out of a sterile world of fears and lusts, of human beings waiting for some sign or promise of redemption. The poets in this collection transform the Unreal City at the heart of T.S. Eliot's "wasteland" to that other city inside our heads, our fantasies, our dreams, our memories mixed with desire. Work by Ruth Bavetta, Chiwan Choi, Sharon Duncan, Alan Fox, James Gregory, Jean Katz, Wayne Liebman, Candace Moore, Susan Salomon Neiman, Caron Perkal, Elaine Warick, and Vicki Whicker.
