LABA, Mark. Dummy Spit. (Toronto) : The Mercury Press, (2002). First Printing. Pp [1]-75,(1). 8vo, illustrated cream card covers. "Dummy Spit is the first major poetry collection by Mark Laba, a long-time veteran of the Canadian small press scene. Equal parts hardcore surrealism and Yiddish vaudeville, Mark Laba’s poetry is elliptical, crass, hilarious, lightning-fast, andoddly lyrical. Whether Laba is plumbing the depths of ventriloquism or tak ing to the high seas on a Henny Youngmanesque voyage of discovery, he shocks, enthralls, and amuses. To read these poems is to juggle hot potatoes, blindfolded and without oven mitts. Mark Laba is an important voice in Canadian poetry, and this collection will finally bring his work to a larger audience." - from the back cover. Mark Laba grew up in Toronto, but now lives in Vancouver. Very good. 15.00
