New York: William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1983.
First Quill Edition. Paperback. Signed by David Bottoms at title page and additionally inscribed to the previous owner at half-title and dated April 94. 8 1/4" X 5 1/2". 62pp. Mild edgewear and slight lifting to pictorial wraps. Binding is firm and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. A presentable signed copy of this 1983 collection of poems by the award-winning former Poet Laureate of Georgia, of whom the poet and novelist James Dickey said, "One cannot read him without being nerve-touched by his sardonic yet compassionate countryman's voice, his hunter's irony. Bottoms has come into American poetry quickly; his place is already high, and will be higher." Very good. Item #5860
