ISBN: 0972295828
Penn Valley, CA: R.L. Crow Publications, 2004. First Edition. Softcover. Inscribed & signed twice by Ann Menebroker to Charles Plymell. "Anne Menebroker's Tiny Teeth, the Wormwood Review Poems, chronicles the challenges of a young woman as she struggles, fights and loves her way through a decade and a half of life. The poems are tough, soft, bold, shy, playful and often sensual to the point of being erotic. Ann caresses the moments of her life with a language so honest and a voice so clear that you can feel the warmth of her breath on the page." (from back cover) A collection of poems by Ann Menebroker (1936-2016), all of which had appeared in various numbers of the prestigious literary journal Wormwood. As noted in her brief biography following the collection, Menebroker "...is recognized as one of the leading women writers of the "no apologies offered and none needed" male dominated "Meat Poets." Her work has nothing to hide and does not attempt to." On title page, Menebroker has hand-written & twice-signed: "For Charley Plymell-/ nice to finally/ meet the outlaw!/ (signed) Annie 5/19/2011/ (signed) Ann Menebroker." Charles Plymell, the great American poet, printer & indeed Legendary Literary Outlaw, was an inspiration & kindred spirit to the late poet, as indicated in this warm inscription- the first we have encountered where Plymell is referred to in this oft-mentioned capacity. Trade-format softcover original, first edition, first printing as indicated on copyright page. A key collectible in the prolific Menebroker canon-legacy, with very significant poet-to-poet association & provenance. In very fine condition with only very slight rubbing & scratching to front, back covers & spine; very mild wear & a few tiny bumps, creases at edges & corners of same. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3581]
