TALKING LEAVES, 1979.

Limited to 30 numbered copies, signed by the author. Designed and published by Soheyl Dahi, Sore Dove's editor and publisher. Sore Dove is noted for publishing poetry chapbooks and broadsides. In December 1978, the author and others formed the Union of Street Poets. This work is a collection of Hirschman's poetry, illustrated with artwork by Kristen Wetterhahn. Hirschman wrote a poem weekly, commencing in January through the first week of June 1979. This work was published by Sore Dove in memory of the Union of Street Poets, designed to "evoke the excitement of North Beach in those years."
