A Book of Ours

ISBN: 1880280019
Rhinebeck, NY: St. Lazaire Press, 1991. First Edition. Softcover. "The oldest religion is where we are. And where we are encompasses everywhere we ever were...That's what pleases me about Pat Smith's work, his certain comprehension that only from our preposterous loves and love stories, from the dumb clamor of the self, can one reach out and find place." (From Robert Kelly quote on back cover) A volume of poems by Pat Smith, our hometown Ann Arbor's own self-made, acclaimed polymath- musician, computer whiz, writer, & founding publisher-editor of NOTUS, the noted literary journal (of which we have several issues & bundles available among our offerings). The lengthy first poem, "Hour History," was originally published as a separate work by Burning Deck Press in 1987 as noted on copyright page, & is followed by shorter works previously included in various journals (including NOTUS), all gathered here for the first time in one beautiful production. With artful front cover photograph by the poet; photo of the poet by Bill McNeece on last page; blank black front & rear endpapers. A wonderful Smith collectible in exceptionally very fine condition, substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #3121]
