Port Townsend, Washington: Copper Canyon Press, 2005.
First Edition. Paperback. 9" X 6". 304pp. Stated First Printing. A touch of shelfwear to paper wraps, else fine in tight, sound binding, with uncreased spine and bright, clean, unmarked pages. From rear cover: "Jubilant Thicket teems with the eccentric, strange, and boundlessly authentic--neoclassical poems, social satire, musical suites, limericks and lyrics. There is spleen, salt, and a delicious sarcasm, as Williams finds inspiration in Mahler and Mojo Nixon, William Black and whimmy-diddles. Always in knowing command, he serves up an admixture of 'found' and vernacular language, invented and archaic forms, jokes, shock, literary allusions, and political disgust." Near fine. Item #1500
