Tonto Lavoris. Clark Coolidge, Larry Fagin. Adventures in Poetry. 1973.

Tonto Lavoris.

Adventures in Poetry, 1973. Item #863

Side-stapled wrappers. No cover attribution. As Clark Coolidge explains in an interview with Tom Orange, the book:

"was a collaboration with me and Larry Fagin. I think Larry started noticing two-word groups in my poems that sounded like names. Some were, but most of them weren't. And he started making up this list. I think 'Lavoris Tonto' was the original sequence, but we changed it to 'Tonto Lavoris.' That was a collaboration, but all the words come from my poems." (Jacket 2, no. 13. Apr. 2001; via Eclipse Archive)

Light shelf wear to covers and edges; near fine.
