The New York Quarterly No. 17 (1975)

New York, NY: The New York Poetry Review Foundation, Inc., 1975. First Printing. Softcover. Signed by Diane Wakoski. This vintage number of the venerable high-quality poetry journal features contributions of poems by A.R. Ammons, cult favorite Charles Bukowski, Erica Jong, Jackson Mac Low & many other varied, distinguished poets. There is an in-depth interview with the acclaimed & prolific Beat-influenced poet Diane Wakoski, then-associated with the Deep Image School who has long resided here in Michigan. On page 20, the first page of text preceded by a photograph of the poet, Wakoski has hand-written her signature with characteristic series of vertical doodles in blue ink, just below her printed name & with the doodles overlapping with her first name above & preamble text below. Among the NYQ's prestigious "Craft Interview" series, with another photo of the poet opposite its last page of text. With lengthy editor's foreword, more photographs, notes on contributors, contemporary ads, etc. The Advisory Board listed on back cover includes such primary American literary icons as John Ashbery, James Dickey, Isabella Gardner, Robert Lowell & others. Another landmark in this most collectible series; & a very important, insightful rarity in the Wakoski canon especially with her signature.
