NOLA Express / Southern Louisiana Media Corp. 1970-71, New Orleans - 11 tabloid issues (ca.11.25" x 15.5"), printed in black and white and in colors on newsprint; ca.24-32pp; illus. Each issue with applied address label reading: "Chs Bukowski / 5124 Delongpre Av / LA CA / 90027." Issues have light overall wear and toning to extremities, old horizontal folds at center, with the occasional split or short tear; overall, Very Good to Very Good+. Small group of issues of this underground newspaper, produced by a dedicated band of poets, activists, and illustrators based in the French Quarter. Each issue addressed to Charles Bukowski's Delongpre Ave. address in Los Angeles, and each bearing contributions of poetry or short fiction by him. A list of contributions as follows: No.54 ("The Beginner"); No.55 ("Notes of a Potential Suicide"); No.57 ("New Mexico"); No.58 ("The Beautiful Lady"); No.59 ("A Rolling Poem"); No.60 ("Love It or Leave It"), this issue with a few holograph notations in Bukowski's hand (in pencil), with several strike-through's and corrections at his contribution; No.61 ("All the Pussy We Want"); No.68 ("Life in a Texas Whorehouse"); No.69 ("A Lovely Love Affair"); No.73 (untitled, beginning with "The President of the United States of America."); No.75 ("The Silver Christ of Santa Fe"). Other contributors include William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Claude Pelieu, and William Wantling, et al. Issues are surprisingly uncommon in the trade, though NOLA was a long-running publication. Many of Bukowski's contributions for NOLA appeared for the first time, and remained uncollected until quite recently.
