Comments

Late collection of poems, uncharacteristically issued by Black Sparrow in a single edition of 750 numbered and signed copies, with an additional 26 lettered copies. Notable for containing the poem "Dinosauria, we," which inspired the title for John Dullaghan's 2003 documentary "Bukowski: Born Into This." About the best copy one could hope for - the type that separates the good from the great. Krumhansl 122a.
