Tuckasegee, NC: Milky Way Editions/ New Native Press, 2016. First Edition. Softcover. Signed by co-publisher Thomas Rain Crowe. "Having been privy to the process by which Michael Revere has rendered the poems in Raking Leaves in a Hurricane, I am frankly in awe of how he has stayed true to his intention in bringing these poems from the ethers and onto the page. For several years he has stayed focused and diligent and disciplined and the result is not only unique to the American canon but profoundly of the enlightened American spirit." (Thomas Rain Crowe, from back cover) A collection of poems by Michael Revere, an American Vietnam War-era veteran, poet, musician & activist. The 325 mostly very short poems here are divided into two sections ("Popcorn Poems" & the title), numbered & most often titled by their first lines. Full of startling descriptions & insights, they really earn the compliments of Thomas Rain Crowe quoted above. With front cover color reproduction of illustration by Ewa Mazur. Trade-format softcover original, first edition, first printing as stated & indicated by number sequence on copyright page. A handsome co-production of Milky Way Editions & Crowe's New Native Press Imprint. Crowe, the acclaimed poet & publisher, was at the center of the Baby Beat Generation/ Second San Francisco Renaissance during the 1970s (see our book, Starting From San Francisco, Item No. 3071, Deluxe Edition No. 3075). Crowe & Revere are long-standing friends & colleagues with a mutual deep connection to North Carolina (see Appalachian Roots, Item No. 3558). On the copyright page, below & next to NNP reference, Crowe has hand-written his signature in bold blue ink. A most rewarding Revere rarity with significant association & provenance. In very fine condition with only a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of glossy front, back covers & spine esp. at side edge of back cover; otherwise substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine.
