It pays to examine your mail
carefully. That's what quite a
few Ann Arbor residents dis-
covered last month when they
took a second look at what first
appeared to be a standard, al-
beit clever, flyer advertising a

you ask. Well, it's an unwieldy
collection of about 25 loose pages
surrounded by a wrapper and
then sealed in a plastic bag.
Available at the University
Cellar and local bookstores, those
25 pages contain: lists of local
events, recitals, craft guilds,
bookstores, bars, restaurants,
community service organizations,
a recipe for onion soup, poems,
sngs, book reviews, short stories,
interestingdgraphics, superb ads,
an~d on and on.
The format and graphics add
an extra dimension to this com-
pendium that raises it from the
ranks of the ordinary literary
P e r i o d i c a l Lunch is com-
piled by editor Warren Hecht, a
creative writing instructor at the
Residential College, and a coterie
of contributors and staff. Lunch
is put out by Giraffe Graphics,
another local enterprise.
Coping with those pages (It
doesn't matter if you drop the
whole thing on the floor; each
page is a self-contained unit),
looking at its contents, anticipat-
ing what could possibly come
next, the reader is transformed
into a participant.
The poetry -and fiction are
promising, though unsubstantial.
Editorial selection policy may be
responsible for this. In an effort
to keep things light and attrac-
tive in the maiden issue, flash
may have substituted for heft.
With a policy of actively seek-
ing out local talent, and a staff
that already includes several of
the area's better talents-Peter
Anderson, Howard Kohn, and
Marge Piercy-Periodical Lunch
can only improve.
