NY: Random House, 1982. First edition. Octavo; 79pp.; black cloth, in dust jacket. Signed by Johnson on the half-title. Light foxing to textblock edges and endpapers, mild musty odor, else very good in a very good (+) unclipped jacket with a short closed tear at base of spine, minor interior foxing that barely shows through in a few spots on the flaps. A more than presentable copy. Johnson’s considerable empathy and gift for images are both on full display in this, his third book of verse. Selected by Mark Strand for the National Poetry Series, and published a year before Johnson’s first novel, Angels. Rear panel features praise from Raymond Carver and David St. John.
