ISBN: 9781910691472
London, England: Sick Fly Publications/ Tangerine Press, 2019. Limited First Edition Thus. Sewn Wrappers. Signed by Fred Voss. "Open, Generous, democratic, (Fred) Voss excludes no one. His poetry is true to his formulation that being human is enough to have in common. Refusing the divisions of class, ethnicity, wealth, or faith Voss embraces humanity in its entirety and knows how to touch on those features of our common species inheritance which deny the tendentious categories of the seekers after power and money." (from Preface by Alan Dent, unpaginated) A collection of poems by Fred Voss, an award-winning American poet & long-time machinist. The poems here are raw, evocative celebrations of labor & all human endeavor in the Whitmanesque tradition. With preface by the noted British writer & critic Alan Dent, quoted above. Chapbook in sewn binding, a handsome, high-quality production of Sick Fly Publications, a subsidiary imprint of Tangerine Press, edited by Michael Curran, our friend across the pond in the UK. The eighth number in SFP's "Walking Wounded Series" as stated on copyright page, where it is acknowledged that the poems in this collection first appeared in the literary journal MQB. One of a limited edition of 53 copies published during October 2019, boldly signed by Voss on title page & hand-numbered at colophon. This is final copy No. 53/53. Though some of the people & situations depicted in these poems may literally involve the "Walking Wounded," the spirit here is redemptive, ultimately triumphant against the existential dread that permeates some other numbers in this series. A highly rewarding Voss collectible, another instant rarity by Tangerine-&-Co. In very fine condition, substantially as-new inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #4439]
